To the editor: The article on gallium-67 for localization of septic lesions written by Littenburg and associates (Ann Intern Med 79:403-406, 1973) clearly showed the usefulness of gallium-67 for the localization of septic lesions. Subsequent to the publication of the article, a letter appearing in this column by Gelrud, Milder, and Canellos (Ann Intern Med 80:775-776, 1974) made several points relevant to the diagnosis of infection using gallium-67. The authors cautioned that a negative gallium-67 study might not rule out infection and also lamented the fact that there were no prospective series with adequate bacteriologic conformation.
