The term calcinosis cutis refers to the deposit of calcium salts in the skin, in the subcutaneous and muscular tissue. Four main types of calcinosis cutis have been identified on the basis of their etiological characteristics: dystrophic, metastatic, iatrogenic and idiopathic. This article presents a case of calcinosis cutis universalis which had an unusual multidistrict diffusion and a particular radiological and ultrasound appearance of the calcifications.
