Lung uptake of 99Tc(m) sulfur colloid in falciparum malaria: case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Increased lung uptake of 99mTc sulfur colloid was seen during liver scanning in a patient with falciparum malaria. This finding was due to the enhanced activity of the phagocytic cells of the reticuloendothelial system in the liver, spleen, and lung found in human and experimental malaria. Similar findings in other clinical situations and the relevant literature are reviewed.
