.e., where bone and skin are thinly separated) or in the footpads and mouth. Calcinosis cutis occurs in susceptible pets in areas where local skin damage has occurred. Calcinosis cutis has two forms Calcinosis circumscripta is the result of deposition of calcium salts in the subcutaneous tissue. The inciting cause is not completely understood but is thought to be due to chronic trauma/irritation as the lesions tend to occur over pressure points or at sites of previous trauma
Calcinosis circumscripta (CC) is presented in lite-rature as a disorder affecting both humans and variousspecies of animals. In medicine CC defines smallmineralized foci formed within the subcutaneous tis- sue. Bigger lesions located in the connective tissue arecalled tumoral calcinosis, but both terms are equall Calcinosis circumscripta in dogs is when calcium deposits in the skin, usually at bony prominences or in the mouth or footpads. These calcium deposits have a cystic structure and are usually calcium carbonate or calcium phosphate Skin. Keratin bars (rapid stain) Collagen.

Specifically, calcinosis circumscripta occurs when calcium deposits occur in protruding bones. Currently, the cause of calcinosis circumscripta is unknown. Dogs Who Are Affecte Calcinosis cutis in dogs is when deposits of insoluble mineral salts occur in the different layers of the skin. These mineral deposits will cause dystrophic or metastatic calcification. In dogs, it is more common to have dystrophic calcification than metastatic

A hygroma is a false bursa that develops over bony prominences and pressure points, especially in large breeds of dogs. In young dogs the pathogenesis is believed to be due to trauma. In older dogs, hygromas tend to be result of impaired ambulation and excessive time spent in recumbency on hard surfaces In some dogs, to detect a few amastigotes in the dermis, immunohistochemical staining must be performed (Fig. 3.110). Cytology of pustules is composed of segmented neutrophils, whereas AKs are usually scarce or totally absent (Fig. 3.111) Calcinosis Circumscripta Calcinosis circumscripta is localized deposition of calcium in small nodules in subcutaneous tissues or attached to tendons or joint capsules.51 The lesions of calcinosis circumscripta appear grossly as hard, spherical, nonpainful, subcutaneous, or periarticular swellings

The lingual lesions are identical with calcinosis circumscripta as described in the literature and 10 subcutaneous lesions that we examined Calcinosis circumscripta was found in the metacarpal pad of an otherwise healthy young German Shepherd Dog. The lesion caused progressive lameness. Incomplete surgical excision alleviated pain, while preserving a functional metacarpal pad. There were no clinical or laboratory data to indicate impaired renal function in this dog of calcinosis circumscripta lesions is the hindlimb (50% of affected dogs) . Calcinosis is classified into 3 groups: dystrophic, metastatic, and idiopathic calcinosis [1,3]. Dystrophic calcinosis occurs in a specific area of tissue damage, which may be due to injury, necrosis, inflammation, or neoplasia. Serum calcium and phosphate levels.

Calcinosis circumscripta is an uncommon disorder characterized by calcium deposits in soft tissue. It is also known as tumoral calcinosis, calcinosis cutis, calcium gout, or lipocalcinosis [1,2].It occurs most often in young large-breed dogs, particularly those 2 years of age, with German shepherd dogs being predisposed calcinosis cutis. The cause of calcinosis circumscripta is currently unknown, but the majority of cases most likely involve trauma followed by dystrophic mineralization. In some cases it may be an incidental finding in young rapidly-growing large breed dogs (especially German Shepherd dogs). This lesion most commonly occurs at sites of previou Christie GS, Jabara AG.Apocrine cystic calcinosis: the sweat gland origin of calcinosis circumscripta in the dog. Res Vet Sci 1964; 5: 317. 37.
