Abstract

Tumoral Calcinosis is an entity characterised by large peri-articualar deposition of calcium phosphate that resembles a neoplasm. Although the aetiology remains obscure, this clinical entity is well established in literature. More than 300 case reports have been published in English literature, but isolated involvement of hand is extremely rare. We herein report a rare case of Tumoral Calcinosis in hand with a very unusual presentation. The clinical presentation posed a diagnostic problem, as it appeared to be infection till the radiograph revealed calcified nodular deposits. The calcific deposits were successfully removed surgically and patient had dramatic relief of symptoms. There was no disturbance of Calcium or phosphate metabolism and no family history of similar disorder was present. After two years of follow up, there was no recurrence and patient is symptom free.
