The main purpose of renal scintigraphy in pediatric patients is the quantitation of renal function, which is not easily obtained by the other diagnostic modalities. Sometimes it also provides valuable anatomic as well as functional information about the urinary tract. We present a case with a vesicorectal fistula to describe the use of Tc-99m DTPA diuretic renography in the diagnosis of a vesicorectal fistula and to localize its level.
