Myocardial scintigrams, using 99Tc(m) stannous pyrophosphate, showed an acute posterior infarction and an abnormally placed left kidney in a 24 yr old hypertensive man. Further study revealed that the kidney was displaced by a mass later proven to be a pheochromocytoma. The latter was the cause of his hypertension and probably instigated the acute myocardial infarction.
