Abstract

Two cases are reviewed, both of which developed tumoral calcinosis whilst receiving 1, α-hydroxycholecalciferol therapy. Tumoral calcinosis is an extreme form of peri-articular calcification, and its occurrence in patients with chronic renal failure is unusual. These peri-articular masses developed around the shoulders in both patients, and the action of 1, α- hydroxycholecalciferol as a possible factor promoting this form of metastatic calcification is discussed.
