Abstract

False negative I accumulation in metastatic lesions of thyroid carcinoma could be due to various etiologies. Here we present a 33-year-old woman with a history of papillary thyroid cancer who had increased Tc pertechnetate activity in the mediastinal metastatic lymph nodes, which was not clearly seen on whole body I scan due to adjacent activity from lung metastases.
