Calcinosis cutis may be associated with metastatic calcification, dystrophic calcification, tumoral calcinosis, or may be deemed idiopathic. The association of cutaneous calcification with metastatic or tumoral calcinosis is quite rare. A case of metastatic calcinosis cutis in a woman with chronic renal failure and secondary hyperparathyroidism is presented. Other causes of calcinosis cutis are discussed briefly.
