Abstract

A 48-year old woman presented with disseminated cholangiocarcinoma and diffuse joint pain. A technetium 99m methylene diphosphonate bone scan revealed no bony abnormality, but intense bilateral renal uptake was seen. There was temporary renal impairment following imaging, but the cause of this is uncertain. An association between cholangiocarcinoma and `hot kidneys' on bone imaging scanning has not been previously reported.
