Abstract

Calciphylaxis is a rare devastating medical condition commonly associated with end-stage renal disease and characterized by extensive microvascular calcifications. We describe a case of calciphylaxis presenting on Tc-99m MDP bone scan imaging with asymmetric radiotracer uptake within the lower extremities corresponding to extensive soft tissue calcifications on Computed tomography. Familiarity with the classic clinical presentation and imaging features of this rare entity may help its early identification and treatment.
