An 83-year-old man with testicular lymphoma demonstrated progressive scrotal enlargement with non-homogeneity sonographically and abnormally increased uptake in the scrotum of Tc-99m HMDP and Tc-99m MIBI scintigraphically. Extensive bone/bone marrow metastases were exhibited by Tc-99m MIBI and Tc-99m HMDP scintigraphies and MRI of the spine. In addition, focal/tubular activity of the femoral bone marrow on Tc-99m MIBI imaging was consistent with skeletal scintigraphic findings. It is emphasized that Tc-99m MIBI total body imaging enabled the demonstration of testicular lymphoma as increased uptake and the illustration of skeletal/bone marrow metastases as diffuse and/or focal increased uptake, especially focal/tubular MIBI activity of the femoral marrow.
