Abstract

In this case report we present a rare manifestation of a false-negative diuretic radionuclide renography in a patient with urinary ascites due to retroperitoneal fibrosis. Diuretic renography may lead to false-negative results and should be carefully evaluated in this group of patients. Copyright (C) 2003 S. Karger AG, Basel.
