The case of a six-month-old boy with mandibular Caffey's disease is described. Emphasis is placed on the role of bone scintigraphy, as a diagnostic method which would be, because of the clinical picture and the beginning of the disease (suspected osteomyelitis), one of the first methods performed. Highly characteristic scintigraphic image, when the mandible is involved, can play the most important role in further treatment, and its recognition can also spare many unnecessary procedures.
