Calcinosis frequently accompanies rheumatologic diseases and mostly occurs after trauma, due to structural damage, hypovascularity, and tissue hypoxia. Calcinosis may be seen in a localized area or it may be widespread, causing muscle atrophy, joint contractures, and skin ulceration. Herein, we report a patient with localized form of calcinosis that occured without history of trauma and the patient also has a diagnosis of undifferentiated connective tissue disease.
