Calcinosis Cutis – Idiopathic Scrotal Calcinosis

March 7th, 2015

Idiopathic Scrotal Calcinosis is a skin condition that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Idiopathic Scrotal Calcinosis is the most common type of idiopathic calcinosis cutis.  It most commonly occurs in young men and clinically appears as small white firm papules underneath the scrotal skin.  Although they are benign and treatment is not needed, they can be removed by surgical excision.
