DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Deposition of precipitated calcium salts (amorphous calcium phosphate with small amounts of calcium carbonate) in the dermis and subcutis.
ClassificationThis section has been translated automatically.
A distinction is made between:
- Metastaticcalcinosis (calcinosis metastatica)
- Dystrophic calcinosis(calcinosis dystrophica)
Remark: In the American literature the terms calcinosis metabolica, dystrophica and idiopathica are used synonymously. This seems to be a useful and pragmatic solution from a clinical point of view. Therefore, in this encyclopedia, these terms are listed individually, but are treated under the term "Calcinosis dystrophica".
