Juvenile dermatomyositis is a rare, chronic autoimmune disorder commonly associated with calcinosis cutis. Although great advances have been made in the treatment of juvenile dermatomyositis, little progress has been made in the treatment of calcinosis cutis. It remains resistant to medical treatment and surgical intervention has long been avoided due to early reports of poor wound healing and sinus track formation associated with the surgical excision of calcinosis cutis. The literature on management of calcinosis cutis is sparse and the aim of this paper is to review the literature regarding treatment options for calcinosis cutis and present a case with a large mass involving the elbow that was successfully treated with surgical excision and local fasciocutaneous flap.
