Abstrakt

Calcinosis cutis is a rare disease entity characterized by deposits of calcium in the skin and subcutaneous tissue causing hard-to-heal ulcers. This is a case report on a patient with femoral ulcers in connection with densely mineralized skin caused by ketobemidon injections. Next to surgical excision of calcified tissue the patient received extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). On the basis of excellent healing, partial skin transplant was feasible. We advocate for randomized trials on ESWT as an adjunctive therapy for complex non-healing wounds.
