• Calcinosis cutis is a common clinical feature of dermatomyositis and scleroderma but is only rarely reported in association with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We describe three patients with long-standing systemic lupus erythematosus in whom extensive calcinosis cutis developed. We identify characteristics our patients share in common with 23 previously described patients.
