Calcinose tumorale, à propos d'un cas pédiatrique [Tumoral calcinosis in a child: a case report and review]
Tumoral calcinosis (Ct) is a rare pathology of unknown origin.We present the clinical, imaging ( including CT and MRI), surgical and pathology findings of Ct in a 9 year-old boy who presented with an incidental finding of a large elbow mass. The MR aspect of Ct has been reported only once and this case is the second description in a child. The association of Ct and dermatomyositis, as reported hereby, has also been described only once. With respect to treatment alternatives, we believe that it is important for radiologists to recognise this rare pathology in pediatric patients.
