Abstract

Tumoral Calcinosis on Right Knee in 26 Years Old Male: A Rare Case Report

Tumoral calcinosis is a subtype of calcinosis cutis. It is a benign disorder that develops gradually. A 26 years old male patient presented with a painless swelling around the right knee since 1 year. The mineral levels of patient in the form of serum calcium, phosphate and uric acid were normal. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) followed by excisional biopsy was done and final diagnosis was given as tumoral calcinosis. Although there were other modalities for diagnosis, histopathological examination is the confirmatory and gold standard tool for the final diagnosis.

Keywords: Tumoral calcinosis; Excisional biopsy; Histopathology
