Abstract

Tumoral calcinosis is a frequent manifestation of hyperparathyroidism secondary to chronic renal failure. Precipitates of hydroxyapatite crystals are deposited in subcutaneous tissue as lobulated masses. The authors present a case of Ga-67 uptake in the calcified soft tissue masses of a chronic renal failure patient. The abnormal Ga-67 localization may relate to either active calcification in these masses or an associated inflammatory reaction.
