We have observed soft-tissue calcification of the chest in 4 of 54 patients following thoracotomy in the neonatal period for a Blalock-Taussig or a Blalock-Hanlon procedure. The time of appearance ranged from 2 weeks to 11 months. This calcification is similar to myositis ossificans in having a traumatic origin. In one of the patients, it resolved spontaneously.
