A 33 years old female patient with chronic renal transplant rejection proved by MAG3, ultrasound and graft biopsy presented with abdominal pain and fever. Part of her work up included gallium-67 scan which revealed diffuse abnormal graft uptake with multifocal areas of marked uptake. Findings were interpreted as acute lobar nephronia. Repeat gallium scan two weeks after intravenous antibiotic therapy showed significant response reflected by resolution of most of focal areas of increased uptake which was parallel to clinical improvement.
