FNAC of Bilateral Iliac Idiopathic Calcinosis Cutis: A Rare Case Report


Chide P, Mahadani J and Hingway S

We report a case of idiopathic calcinosis cutis diagnosed by fine needle aspiration cytology in a 70 year old female who presented with subcutaneous swellings near the bilateral iliac crests. Cytological finding of amorphous calcium salts with histiocytes and the appropriate clinical background led to the cytodiagnosis of idiopathic calcinosis cutis as subsequently confirmed on histopathology. Pitfalls in the diagnosis of calcinosis cutis on cytology smears are also discussed
