Myositis ossificans after tetanus: treatment aided by quantitative technetium Tc 99m pyrophosphate radionuclide imaging.
Functionally disabling myositis ossificans of the posterior aspect of the elbow occurred in a 66-year-old man as a sequela of tetanus. Serial quantitative bone scans were done to determine the optimal time for excision, which produced an excellent functional result without recurrence at 4 years.
