Generalized Calcinosis Cutis Without Involvement of Muscles or Nerves. Presented by Dr. Henry B. Decker and Dr. A. G. Pratt.
T. M., a white boy aged 5 years, presents nodules varying in size from 0.5 to 8 cm. Some are hard, fixed to the skin and immovable; others are soft and movable. There are ulcerated nodules and depressed scars localized on the forearms, arms, legs, thighs and buttocks, with the ulceration and scarring particularly noticeable at the joints. One small nodule is present on the left side of the face. The child's weight at birth was 4 pounds 6 ounces (1,985 Gm.). He was bottle fed with cow's milk. He had miliaria on the arms when he was 4 months old. He has had measles and a few colds but no other illnesses. Hard lumps appeared under the skin of the right arm when he was 18 months old.
