Abstract

In a patient with breast tumor,99mTc-HMDP accumulation in the tumor was recognized in evaluating bone metastasis. Surgery and histopathology revealed that the tumor was a phyllodes tumor. This scintigraphic finding was thought to be rare and phyllodes tumor should be included in differential diagnosis when99mTc-HMDP accumulation in the breast was recognized.

Key words
