Abstract

Dystrophic calcification is seen in more than 50% of children with juvenile dermatomyositis and tends to resolve spontaneously in some patients. Calcinosis universalis is the least common type of calcification seen and rarely regresses. We describe a boy with juvenile dermatomyositis and calcinosis universalis who developed hypercalcemia during spontaneous regression of dystrophic calcification. The treatment and possible mechanisms of this complication are discussed.
