Abstract

Scintigraphy with Tc-99m HMPAO-labeled leukocytes proved useful to diagnose intestinal lesions in Crohn disease (CD). The hybrid device combining single photon emission tomography (SPECT) and computed tomography (CT) has been reported to improve SPECT diagnostic accuracy matching functional and anatomic information. The authors describe a 30-year-old man with ileorectal anastomosis for CD. In this case, SPECT shows an area of leukocyte accumulation within the pelvis, and SPECT/CT precisely localizes this uptake along a perianal fistulous tract. This image indicates the usefulness of the hybrid SPECT/CT device to assess the site and the extent of CD lesions within the pelvic floor. Copyright © 2006 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
