The Teaching Point

While tumoral calcinosis is rare, it can present at any age in nearly any location and should remain in the differential diagnosis for any calcified soft tissue mass. Its various components of calcium deposition, fibrous bands and soft tissue contribute to distinctive radiological features including extensive calcification without a connection to bone, well visualized on CT, a cobble-stone appearance with or without the sedimentation sign, and iso- or hypointensity on T1W, and heterogeneous hyperintensity on both T2W and T1W post contrast MRI images.

Subscapular tumoral calcinosis in a toddler: case report

Abstract
Tumoral calcinosis is uncommon in toddlers, and rare within the subscapular area. Although typically benign, tumoral calcinosis is often incorrectly diagnosed prior to biopsy. We present a case of subscapular tumoral calcinosis in a 16-month old girl and discuss the radiological findings on X-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, including the first description of T1-weighted post contrast imaging, which demonstrate the fibrotic components of tumoral calcinosis.
