An 18-year-old man with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma and osseous metastases underwent bone scintigraphy to monitor the effect of chemotherapy. The images showed significant improvement of bone lesions. However, the scan revealed a vertically shaped urinary bladder and diffused increased activity in the genital region. A diagnostic pelvic CT was subsequently performed, which showed a thickened bladder wall, an ill-defined pelvic mass, and extensive subcutaneous edema in the genital region.
