Idiopathic Scrotal Calcinosis: Scrotal calcinosis is an uncommon benign condition characterized by presence of calcified nodules (usually multiple) in the scrotal skin. Most cases are thought to arise by dystrophic calcification of burnt-out cysts. Some cases may be idiopathic.

It is usually seen in children and young adults. The scrotal skin contain multiple soft to hard, marble-like nodules ranging in size from a few mm. to several cm. The overlying skin may get stretched and ulcerated causing oozing of chalky material.
