Özet

A 37-year-old male patient presented with right knee pain and swelling. The patient had a 6-year history of rheumatoid arthritis. Physical examination was notable for swelling and tenderness of the right knee. The diagnosis of lipoma arborescens (LA) was confirmed from the magnetic resonance imaging of the right knee. Herein, we report the use of bone scintigraphy in a case of LA treated with yttrium-90 radiosynovectomy.
