Abstract

Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy with 111In-[DTPA-D-Phe1]-octreotide has the potential for visualizing primary and recurrent thymomas in patients with myasthenia gravis, whereas thymic hyperplasias fail to accumulate somatostatin analog peptides. We demonstrate somatostatin receptor imaging findings in a patient with a mixed encapsulated thymoma which exhibited intense ...
