Abstract

Patients with multi-organ disorders may present with a plethora of confusing symptoms and signs. Often early diagnosis of significant disease is essential and can be difficult with standard radiological techniques. This case report presents the use of two radioisotopic techniques to assess brain and lung perfusion in a patient with such an acute-multi-organ disorder-the HELLP syndrome.
