Tumoral Calcinosis

slide 4 of 4


Comments:
Cut surface shows yellowish-white gritty deposits of hydroxyapatite material in the subcutis within a background of dense fibrous tissue. Some cases contain whitish, milky fluid which washes away leaving behind cystic spaces. The calcific deposits infiltrate fascia, tendons, and muscle but don't involve the bone.
