Systemic calciphylaxis presenting as a painful, proximal myopathy

Edelstein C.L. ; Wickham M.K. ; Kirby P.A. (1992)


A renal transplant patient who presented with a painful, proximal myopathy due to systemic calciphylaxis is described. The myopathy preceded the characteristic skin and soft tissue necrosis. Systemic calciphylaxis should be considered in a dialysis or a renal transplant patient presenting with a painful proximal myopathy even in the absence of necrotic skin lesions.
