Abstract

A 27-year-old female patient was admitted to our hospital with a history of leg pain and mass. She had a benign osteoblastoma in right tibia. Resection of the tumor without treatment by vitamin D antagonist resulted in rapid cure of the osteomalacia. Bone scintigraphy with Tc-99m MDP revealed multiple hot uptakes in initial scan, and follow up scan showed a clear resolution of the lesions.
