Tumoral calcinosis is an uncommon disease characterized by periarticular soft-tissue hyperplasia and calcification. Large joint such as hip, shoulder and elbow are most commonly involved. This entity usually manifest in adolescent females as slowly growing, painless, mobile soft-tissue tumor like mass around the large joint that may interfere with joint function when large. A familial predisposition has been reported. Exact cause is not known, but there is deposition of calcium phosphate with normal calcium and elevated phosphorus levels. Here, we report a case of 15-year-old female presented with symmetrical, recurrent swellings on various joints with milk like fluid extrusion and scar mark of previous excision.
