    Thirteen patients are described in whom the results of 125I fibrinogen uptake testing in life were compared with the postmortem findings in the soleus muscle and in addition with direct radioactive counting of soleus muscle portions. The sensitivity of the 125I fibrinogen uptake test was found to be approximately half that of direct muscle radioactive counting or histological examination. Some limitations of the technique are discussed.
