Amati C, Pesce V, Armenio A, Solarino G, Moretti B - J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: Tumoral calcinosis is a rare condition described in literature as a deposition of calcium salts in soft tissues.We here report a rare case of Tumoral calcinosis in the index finger of a hand in a 22-year-old woman.For the particular area involved we performed a radical excision followed by an interesting reverse homodigital artery flap from the ulnar side of the index.

RJV036F1: Pre-op presentation.

Mentions: A 22-year-old woman, right dominant hand, visited our Department complaining of the presence of several small swellings localized under the skin of the pulp of the index finger (Figs 1–5). She reported an increase in the number of swellings in a period of about 2 years. She noted the first one 3 years before. She never felt pain. An X-ray of the index finger showed multiple not well-defined round-like calcified lesions, without involvement of the bone or of the distal interphalangeal joint. There were no other such lesions in the body. The patient was apyrexial and in good general health. There were no signs of tenosynovitis, palmar space or flexor sheath infection. She had no lymphangitis or regional lymphadenopathy.Figure 1:
