Abstract

Idiopathic scrotal calcinosis is a rare, benign condition with the presence of multiple slow-growing yellowish-white calcified asymptomatic nodules that appear within the scrotal skin. The disease affects patients in childhood or early adulthood. The etiology of idiopathic scrotal calcinosis is still controversial. It can extensively affect the scrotal skin, but primary closure is usually achievable with good esthetic outcomes.
