A 22-month-old boy diagnosed with neuroblastoma was evaluated by bone scintigraphy and 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy, and no metastases to skeletal system was detected. However, plain radiograph and MRI revealed suspected metastatic lesions. The patient was therefore evaluated by 68Ga-DOTA-TATE PET/CT, and 68Ga-DOTA-TATE uptake was observed in multiple bone and bone marrow areas, which were consistent with metastases. Biopsy was taken from the right iliac bone, and the pathological examination of the biopsy specimen was coherent with neuroblastoma invasion.
