Abstract

Arthritis is a frequent manifestation of
Lyme disease. Limited triple-phase Tc-99m MDP bone imaging of the wrists and hands with delayed whole-body images was performed in a patient with
Lyme arthritis. This demonstrated abnormal joint uptake in the wrists and hands in all three phases, with increased activity seen in other affected joints on delayed whole-body images. These findings are nonspecific and have been previously described in a variety of rheumatologic conditions, but not in
Lyme disease.
Lyme disease should be considered in the differential diagnosis of articular and periarticular bone scan abnormalities.
