A 57-year-old male with history of prostatectomy, cyctectomy, cecal urinary diversion for invasive prostate cancer and with a recent rise in PSA level, was referred for bone scintigraphy to rule out osseous metastatic disease. An interesting finding was abnormal tracer accumulation throughout the large bowel, which was proved to be due to urinary diversion.
