Abstract

We present a case of peritoneal mesothelioma that presented with fever of unknown origin and an elevation in the inflammatory parameters. Radiological imaging did not reveal a diagnosis. Because of tumour-associated inflammatory activity, indium-III leucocyte scintigraphy enabled us to establish a diagnosis. To our knowledge, the use of indium-III leucocyte scintigraphy in peritoneal mesothelioma has not been reported previously.
