• A unique case of dermal calcification occurred in a 14-month-old female infant. Results of all pertinent laboratory data obtained on this patient were within normal limits except for an elevation of the heat labile fraction of alkaline phosphatase. A skin biopsy specimen showed irregularly shaped deposits of calcified osteoid with osteoblasts. As yet, neither the cause nor the prognosis of this disease has been delineated.
