    Abstract Hyperphosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis (hFTC) is a rare disorder of phosphate metabolism defined by hyperphosphatemia and ectopic calcifications in various[] Tumoral calcinosis is characterized by the presence of ectopic calcifications around major joints, whereas hyperostosis-hyperphosphatemia syndrome is characterized by recurrent[] BACKGROUND: Tumoral calcinosis is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by ectopic calcification and hyperphosphatemia.[]

  • Calcinosis Cutis

    We excluded other causes of ectopic calcification such as hyperparathyroidism, renal failure, and extravasation of calcium chloride.[] Savin JA: Systemic lupus erythematosus with ectopic calcification. Br J Dermatol 1971;84: 191–192.[] Ectopic calcification can occur in the setting of hypercalcemia and/or hyperphosphatemia without preceding tissue damage by calcium-phosphate nucleation, and crystalline precipitation[]

    calcification and inflammation.[] [More] Tumoral calcinosis (TC) is a rare syndrome involving ectopic calcifications in the vicinity of the large joints. [More][] […] suggested that SAMD9 is an interferon- γ (IFN-γ)-responsive protein, and interacts with RGL2, diminishing the expression of EGR1, a important protein for the pathogenesis of ectopic[]
