Calcinosis Cutis -Metastatic Calcinosis Cutis

February 14th, 2015

Metastatic Calcinosis Cutis is a skin condition that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Clinically, calcified white nodules appear throughout the skin and is caused by a disturbance in the levels of calcium and phosphate in the blood.  The most common cause of the imbalance in calcium and phosphate levels is renal failure.  Other conditions resulting in Metastatic Calcinosis Cutis are sarcoidosis, hyperparathyroidism, hypervitaminosis D, and excess oral intake of calcium and/or phosphorus.  Treatment involves addressing the underlying problem.
