Formatted abstract
Secondary tumoral calcinosis is a rare disorder that is most prevalent in patients with chronic renal failure. It is characterized by lobular densely calcified masses confined to the soft tissue, generally at the extensor surface of a joint in the anatomic distribution of a bursa. We describe a case of a 38-y-old man undergoing dialysis who presented with pyrexia of unknown origin and raised inflammatory markers but was otherwise asymptomatic. A 67Ga scan was performed, on which an incidental diagnosis of secondary tumoral calcinosis was made.
