Abstract
We report a case of incidental multiple focal uptakes of Tc-99m MDP in both the lungs without lung parenchymal abnormality. A 15-year-old girl who had no symptoms or history of pulmonary disorder was referred for Tc-99m MDP bone scintigraphy to evaluate temporomandibular joint disorders. Bone scintigraphy showed multiple focal uptakes in the chest. Single photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography scan performed on the same day showed that abnormal uptakes were located in both the lungs and no abnormalities in the corresponding pulmonary parenchymal sites. Abnormal uptakes resolved on bone scintigraphy after 7 days.
