Tumoral calcinosis is an uncommon and benign condition characterized by the presence of large calcific soft tissue deposits occurring predominantly in a periarticular location. It generally occurs as a complication of renal dialysis or trauma, and is rarely seen in familial and sporadic cases. Bone scintigraphy is a sensitive method for diagnosing tumoral calcinosis. A 28-year-old female patient with a history of operation due to tumoral calcinosis located bilateral hips, referred to our department. She had a tender palpable mass in the right knee and a fistulized incisional scar overlying the bilateral hip joints. A sporadic case of tumoral calcinosis with relapses was presented.
