Abstract

Pseudotumoral calcinosis is a rare condition characterized by periarticular calcium deposition. It preferentially affects large joints such as the hip, shoulder and elbow. It is a severe complication of chronic renal failure. We report a case of secondary pseudotumoral calcinosis in a chronic hemodialysis patient.
