Whole bone activity on skeletal scintigraphy in children, although nonspecific, is uncommon and was caused by unusual presentations of osteomyelitis in two of eight patients. Soft tissue pathology, including cellulitis and vascular obstruction, was causative in four of eight cases. Whole bone activity was seen in two children with trauma due presumably, to subperiosteal hematoma formation and strongly supported the diagnosis of child abuse.
