Abstract

The authors present a case of pathologically proved osteoid osteoma that was visualized randomly on an I-131 whole-body scan. Search of the medical literature did not reveal any mention of radioactive iodine uptake by osteoid osteomas. Therefore, the authors concluded that this pathology must be included in the differential diagnostic list of positive findings on I-131 scans.
