Gallium 67 uptake in thymic rebound.

Author information

  • 1Department of Radiology, University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville.


We have reported a case of localized thymic enlargement and uptake of gallium 67 in a child who had received antineoplastic chemotherapy. The enlarged thymus showed normal histology, a picture consistent with thymic rebound after nonspecific stress. This case further demonstrates the need to consider thymic rebound as a cause of gallium 67 uptake in children with neoplastic diseases.
