Abstract

The case of a six-month-old boy with mandibular Caffey's disease is described. Emphasis is placed on the role of bone scintigraphy, as a diagnostic method which would be, because of the clinical picture and the beginning of the disease (suspected osteomyelitis), one of the first methods performed. Highly characteristic scintigraphic image, when the mandible is involved, can play the most important role in further treatment, and its recognition can also spare many unnecessary procedures.

Abstract in Croatian

Prikazan je slučaj šestomjesečnog dječaka sa Caffyevom bolesti donje čeljusti. Naglasak je stavljen na scintigrafiju kosti kao metodu koja među prvima dolazi u obzir u dijagnostičkom postupku, obzirom da klinička slika i početak bolesti često imitiraju osteomielitis. Zahvaćena donja čeljust ima karakterističan scintigrafski nalaz. Njegovo prepoznavanje ima odlučujuću ulogu u daljnjem postupku, obzirom da bolesnika može poštedjeti nekih, čak i agresivnih metoda.
