964 Possible Causes for Soft Tissue Calcification, Thickening of Spermatic Cord

  • Osteoporosis

    Incorrect diagnosis of osteoporosis can be caused by osteomalacia, osteoarthritis or soft-tissue calcification.[patient.info] tissue calcifications, secondary hyperparathyroidism, or osteomalacia in renal osteodystrophy.[en.wikipedia.org] (reduced bone mass; pre-osteoporosis), such as fractures; for differential diagnosis of osteopenia; or for follow-up examinations in specific clinical settings, such as soft[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    A soft-tissue mass with calcification may be present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Appendicitis

    If the ureter cannot be followed in its entirety and the calcification is indeterminate, the presence of a soft tissue rim ("rim sign" due to inflamed ureteral walls) and[jaocr.org] […] the absence of a soft tissue tail ("tail sign" due to thrombosed vein leading into the calcification) may help characterize urolithiasis. 25,26 Treatment for ureteral calculi[jaocr.org]

  • Calcinosis Universalis

    No cause could be found for the soft tissue calcification. The co-existence of the two diseases is probably incidental.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] reported to have soft tissue calcification.[jstage.jst.go.jp] Resolution of SLE-related soft-tissue calcification following haemopoetic stem cell transplantation.

  • Calcinosis

  • Calcinosis Circumscripta

    CT scan is very important to evaluate the calcification, bones and joints. MRI has its role in the evaluation of the soft-tissue involvement and inflammatory reaction.[mjdrdypu.org] Radiographs of both hands show multiple, punctate calcifications (circles) in the soft tissues of both hands characteristic of calcinosis circumscripta.[learningradiology.com] Resolution of SLE-related soft-tissue calcification following haemopoetic stem cell transplantation.

  • Traumatic Myositis Ossificans

    calcification dystrophic soft-tissue calcification periarticular calcification calcific myonecrosis Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org] The x-ray showed peripheral soft tissue calcification consistent with myositis ossificans. The patient was treated with rest, NSAIDS, and gentle stretching.[priory.com] Plain radiographs showed a bilateral calcified thickening of soft tissues with well-defined bony margins.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudohypoparathyroidism

    In addition, such bilateral symmetric calcification can sometimes be seen within the thalami and the cortex. Also, soft tissue calcification will be seen.[ajnr.org] tissue calcification exostoses: short metaphyseal or more central and perpendicular to long axis of a bone broad bones with coned epiphyses CNS / head and neck manifestations[radiopaedia.org] calcifications.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva

    Radiography of the dorsolumbar rachis showed paravertebral soft tissue calcification adjacent to intact lumbar vertebrae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Multiple heterotopic soft tissue calcifications, severe scoliosis and typical anomalies of toes and thumbs on the radiographs were pathognomonic for fibrodysplasia ossificans[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive; medical rehabilitation; osseous deformities; soft tissue calcifications[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitamin D Toxicity

    Since vitamin K is essential to the nervous system and plays important roles in protecting against bone loss and calcification of the peripheral soft tissues, its deficiency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At best, they will not protect against soft tissue calcification, and at worst, they could perhaps actively faciliate soft tissue calcification.[blog.cholesterol-and-health.com] tissue calcification, including nephrocalcinosis and kidney stones. 1, 5 The risk of vitamin D toxicity may be increased in individuals who have 5 : granulomatous disorders[questdiagnostics.com]
