Increased uptake of 99mTc-pertechnetate was demonstrated in two sites: rectum and left colon. However, gastric mucosa could be identified by endoscopic and histologic examination in the rectum only. The patient was asymptomatic after the operation and during follow-up, over 14 months. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
