Abstract

Tumoral Calcinosis is a distinct clinical and histological entity that is characterized by large periarticular deposits of calcium resembling a neoplasm and is found foremost in the region of hip, shoulder and elbow. We report a case of Tumoral Calcinosis in a 25-year-old male who presented to us with gradually increasing swelling of right axilla, and both hips of nearly two years duration. It was diagnostic enigma for the treating surgeons but with the help of an astute pathologist we diagnosed this rare condition and successfully treated it surgically.
