A case of severe rhabdomyolysis is reported in which, some seven and one-half weeks after its occurrence, a gallium scan was strongly positive, due to abscess formation in the damaged muscle. A bone scan was weakly positive in the same area, due to gallium photons. A review of the the reported cases reveals that bone scans are a very sensitive indicator of acute muscle damage and are useful to monitor its repair.
