Abstract

Intense hepatic accumulation of Tc-99m methylene diphosphonate is described in the setting of vascular obstruction secondary to renal cell carcinoma. Correlation with magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography demonstrates vena caval and hepatic venous obstruction in a patient with sudden onset of renal and hepatic failure. The authors describe an unusual case of extraskeletal tracer accumulation secondary to metastatic disease.
