ESCALERA TEMPRADO, T. et al. Gastric uptake of Gallium67 in the human immunodeficiency virus infection. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2004, vol.21, n.2, pp.41-43. ISSN 0212-7199.

Nowadays, the human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV) is a cronic disease. In the frecuent clinical situations with fever, limph nodes and loss weight it is necessary to determine their etiology, for establishing a specific treatment. Gastrointestinal opportunistic infections or gastric lymphomatous or sarcomatous process, which can accumulate Ga67, may be present in the patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. We report 2 cases with gastric uptake in which endoscopy and biopsy was obtained. In the first one, with previous treatment with omeprazol and almalgate for gastroesophagic reflux, endoscopy and biopsy were normal and in the second patient an Helicobacter pylori infection was diagnosed. We think that gastric uptake of Ga67 in HIV patients, must indicate to  the clinician to rule out associated pathologies
