Osseous metaplasia has recently been described in several cases of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis, sometimes in association with unusual clinical features such as painful hyperkeratotic spicules, palpable bony masses, and disease regression. Some authors have suggested that it may mainly occur late in the disease course or even be a marker for involuting nephrogenic systemic fibrosis. Here, we present a 27-year-old woman with a 7-year history of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis, who developed cutaneous osseous metaplasia.
