Abstract

Calciphylaxis is a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder characterized by medial calcification of arterioles leading to subcutaneous ischemia and skin necrosis. It is most commonly seen in patients with end-stage renal disease or shortly after renal transplantation. We report an unusual case of calciphylaxis occurring 16 years after renal transplantation in a 48-year-old female with a failing graft, along with histological and striking radiological findings.
