Abstract

Technetium-99m antimony sulfide colloid lymphoscintigraphy conveniently demonstrates intestinal leakage of lymph in patients with intestinal lymphangiectasia. However, we found no intestinal radioactivity in some patients. We evaluated lymphoscintigraphic findings and compared them with clinical data. Technetium-99m antimony colloid lymphoscintigraphy was performed in 12 patients (age, 8.9+/-6.4 years; male: female = 8:4) with histologically proven intestinal lymphangiectasia. After subcutaneous injection of 103.6 MBq of technetium-99m antimony colloid into the webs of both feet, sequential abdominal images were obtained up to 24 h post-injection. Four patients underwent technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphy. Patients were divided into two groups according to the presence or absence of intestinal radioactivity. Five showed intestinal activity (Group 1), but seven did not (Group 2). No Group 1 patient had a history of ascites, while all Group2 patients had ascites as the initial manifestation. Serum total protein and albumin levels were significantly lower in Group 1 patients than in Group 2 patients. In three Group 1. patients, technetium-99m methylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphy revealed intestinal radioactivity, while in one Group 2 patient this was not found. We observed two types of lymphoscintigraphic pattern in patients with intestinal lymphangiectasia. To clarify the exact pathophysiology, further study is required.
