Mentions: Based on the clinical and radiologic findings, a diagnosis of tumoral calcinosis was made. The patient underwent excisional biopsy. A direct plantar incision was used. Through the incision of the superficial fascia, the mass was seen surrounded by a fibrous capsule. Excision revealed a multilobulated yellowish mass and led to extrusion of a thick, pus-like fluid (Fig. 2).
