Calcinosis cutis is a rare presentation and not many cases have been reported especially of idiopathic type. We are reporting a case of idiopathic calcinosis cutis of lower limbs in a 33-year old female who presented to our clinic for multiple painless swellings over her lower limbs for the past six months, without any history of trauma or infection. We have decided to observe her condition on regular follow-up and conservative management.

Calcinosis cutis is a rare metabolic disorder characterized by cutaneous and subcutaneous deposition of insoluble calcium salts. Ocular adnexal involvement is uncommon but mostly seen in males and in the upper eyelid. Solitary lesions are more common than multiple. The treatment of choice is excision biopsy. Histopathological examination provides a definitive diagnosis. Directed systemic investigations help to rule out underlying pathologies and aids further management. The present case reports the punctal and peripunctal involvement in a case of ocular adnexal calcinosis cutis...

Calcinosis cutis (CC), or calcium deposition in soft tissue, can cause significant morbidity associated with arthralgias and ulceration. This condition has an elusive pathophysiology and is often associated with autoimmune disorders, significantly impacting the disease burden. The clinical presentation of CC varies, and there is no gold standard treatment modality. The case of a 50-year-old woman with scleroderma and a rare presentation of milky drainage of a left hip ulcer secondary to underlying CC that was treated successfully with surgery and negative pressure wound therapy is reported herein...

A 52-year-old woman presented to the Rheumatology clinic complaining of new tender nodules along the inferior border of her jaw. She has an 8-year history of amyopathic dermatomyositis with anti-MDA5 antibodies complicated by interstitial lung disease. Her current treatments include tacrolimus, prednisone and hydroxychloroquine. She noticed the nodules during the most recent flare of her skin disease one month prior. On exam, she had 2 tender, hard, mobile nodules measuring approximately 5mm each located at 4cm and 2...

Asymptomatic, juxta-articular nodules are an uncommon morphology, which is usually diagnosed as xanthomas, calcinosis cutis or rheumatoid nodules. This study was represented as a case of gout, which is a disorder of purine metabolism resulting in elevation of serum uric acid and deposition of monosodium urate crystals within and around joints and manifests clinically as inflammatory arthritis. Urate crystal deposits have also been found in tendons, ligaments, viscera, and the skin, with the term "tophi" being used for the non-articular deposits...

REVIEW
V N Manskikh, O A Averina, A I Nikiforova
The naked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber, Rüppell, 1842) is a unique eusocial rodent with unusually long lifespan. Therefore, the study of spontaneous and experimentally induced pathologies in these animals is one of the most important tasks of gerontology. Various infections, noninfectious pathologies (including age-dependent changes), and tumors have been described in the naked mole rat. The most frequent pathologies are traumas (bite wounds), purulent and septic complications of traumatic injuries, renal tubular calcinosis, chronic progressive nephropathy, hepatic hemosiderosis, testicular interstitial cell hyperplasia, calcinosis cutis, cardiomyopathy, and dysbiosis-related infectious lesions of the digestive system...

Disorders of calcium-phosphate-parathormone balance, are very important issues in ESRD patients, that may lead to severe complications, as dystrophic calcinosis cutis, a rare disease, caused by calcium salt deposits in cutaneous or subcutaneous tissues and many organs. We present the case of a 47 years old woman, in ESRD due to membranous glomerulopathy, treated by peritoneal dialysis, who, after 7 months of dialysis, developed painful masses on second finger and fifth metacarpus of the right hand. Laboratory and instrumental data showed hyperparathyroidism with a parathyroid mass consistent with adenoma...

BACKGROUND: Calcinosis cutis is characterized by deposition of calcium in the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue. This condition may be initially identified by the WOC nurse, and its management requires a team approach. Calcinosis cutis is a debilitating and painful condition; it is difficult to manage, and widely agreed-upon standards for treatment have not been established. CASES: Two patients who presented with calcium deposits in the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue are discussed...

Calcinosis cutis is a condition of accumulation of calcium salts within the dermis leading to the formation of a calcified mass. This complication has been reported in acne vulgaris and other systemic metabolic disorders. This paper presents a rare case of calcinosis cutis in a 14-year-old male which was found at a routine orthodontic assessment.

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.
