BACKGROUND: Scrotal calcinosis is a rare and benign condition. It usually gives rise to few symptoms, and the impact is mainly functional and aesthetic. It is considered part of dystrophic calcinosis cutis. Surgical management is the only curative approach, and recurrence has been described in few cases. CASE PRESENTATION: We report cases of two North African white patients with operated scrotal calcinosis. We describe the clinical and histological aspects as well as a pathogenic hypothesis and surgical management principles...

A 36-year-old man came to the outpatient dermatology department with asymptomatic, skin-coloured to white/yellow, firm papules on his prepuce. Over the last 10 years he had received different treatments for condylomata accuminata, with no effect. After shave excision, the diagnosis of idiopathic calcinosis cutis was made.

Calcinosis cutis can be classified into four subtypes: dystrophic, metastatic, idiopathic, and iatrogenic. Of these subtypes, dystrophic calcinosis (DC) is the most common, and is most frequently associated with connective tissue disease, particularly dermatomyositis and systemic sclerosis, and less commonly with systemic lupus erythematosus. However, DC associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is extremely rare. In this paper, we present a Japanese woman with RA, who suffered from bilateral leg ulcers secondary to DC...

Juvenile dermatomyositis is a rare systemic connective tissue disease with onset during childhood. It presents clinically with proximal muscle weakness and characteristic skin involvement. Diagnosis is based on the Bohan and Peter criteria, though many authors are now substituting biopsy with muscle magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for both diagnosis and follow-up. Without intensive early treatment, complications such as calcinosis cutis and lipodystrophy can develop in the chronic phases of the disease. Early recognition is therefore key to management...

Idiopathic calcinosis cutis is very rare and difficult to treat. Various medical modalities of treatment described with inconsistent results include chelating agents, colchicine, and probenecid. Calcium channel blockers are known to work by inhibiting intracellular entry of calcium. We successfully treated a case of idiopathic calcinosis cutis using oral diltiazem.

Alterations in calcium and phosphorus levels and joint pain are a common occurrence in end-stage renal disease patients. However, metastatic calcinosis cutis is a rare diagnosis that often combines these two findings, with extensive soft tissue calcification surrounding a large joint being the hallmark of this disease. The exact mechanism behind this clinical entity is unknown. The treatment and complications can be severe and disabling. Here, we discuss the case of a 26-year-old man presenting with unusually advanced skin and joint calcification of the shoulders, neck, hand, and penis...

Dystrophic calcinosis cutis is a debilitating condition of calcium salt deposition in the skin often occurring in association with connective tissue disease (CTD). Available treatments for calcinosis cutis are unsatisfactory, but given the recent use of topical and intralesional sodium thiosulfate (STS) to treat calcifying disorders, we sought to describe the use of intravenous (IV) STS for CTD-associated dystrophic calcinosis cutis. We report three patients with longstanding and extensive CTD-associated calcinosis cutis treated with IV STS after having failed multiple prior therapies...

Calcinosis cutis is a term used to describe a group of disorders in which calcium salt deposits form in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. We report a 6-year-old boy with hypoparathyroidism after thyroidectomy who was admitted to the hospital for severe hypocalcemia being treated with calcium gluconate intravenous infusion through peripheral veins. Within a few days we made a diagnosis of iatrogenic calcinosis cutis and treatment with 10% topical sodium thiosulfate was prescribed; complete resolution of lesions was achieved after 6 months, with no local or systemic adverse effects...

A woman aged 23 years with a diagnosis of mixed connective tissue disorder presented with left groin pain extending over 6 months. Workup revealed avascular necrosis of the femoral head (Grade 3) secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus and chronic steroid intake. An uncemented total hip arthroplasty was considered as the patient was only in the third decade of life. During the preop workup, careful clinical assessment had revealed multiple subcutaneous nodules affecting the extensor musculature limited to the gluteal region, anterior and posterior aspects of the thigh...

Calcinosis cutis is a rare disorder characterized by the deposition of calcium in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Unilateral idiopathic calcinosis cutis has only rarely been reported in the literature. Here, we report the case of a 7-year-old healthy girl who presented with multiple asymptomatic hard nodules on the right side of her body. Histopathological, radiological, and extensive blood investigations confirmed the diagnosis of unilateral idiopathic calcinosis cutis.

INTRODUCTION: Calcinosis circumscripta is a form of ectopic mineralization characterized by single or multiple cutaneous nodules containing calcium salts. Calcinosis cutis circumscripta is a very rare form of idiopathic calcinosis cutis arising in the second half oflife. It typically involves the extremities and is associated with prior trauma and scleroderma. We dealt with a very rare form of calcinosis cutis circumscripta in a healthy patient, for whom surgical excision revealed to be an effective and successful treatment...

History and admission findings A 69-year-old patient was initially hospitalized because of a 1.5 cm ulceration at the back of the right foot which had existed for the last year and become increasingly swollen and painful. Medical history revealed PmScl-positive systemic sclerosis presenting with a massive calcinosis cutis, advanced pulmonary fibrosis and peripheral artery disease. Examinations Inflammatory markers were normal. MR-Angiography of the lower extremities revealed a multi-segmental high-grade stenosis of the aortic bifurcation due to extensively calcified plaques...

We present a patient with poikiloderma, severe osteoporosis and a mild intellectual disability. At the age of 9 years, this patient was proposed to suffer from a novel disease entity designated as calcinosis cutis, osteoma cutis, poikiloderma and skeletal abnormalities (COPS) syndrome. At the age of 35, he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Recently, biallelic pathogenic variants in the RECQL4 gene were detected (c.1048_1049delAG and c.1391-1G>A), confirming a diagnosis of Rothmund-Thomson syndrome (RTS)...

BACKGROUND: Nail involvement has rarely been recognized in systemic sclerosis (SSc). Indeed, only a few small series have assessed nail changes in SSc, most of which are case reports. OBJECTIVE: The aims of the current case-control study were to: (1) determine the prevalence of fingernail changes in SSc; and (2) evaluate the correlation between fingernail changes and other features of SSc. METHODS: In all, 129 patients with SSc and 80 healthy control subjects underwent routine fingernail examination...
