Calciphylaxis is a rare but life-threatening disease characterized by deposition of calcium within small and medium sized vessels, with subsequent thrombosis, cutaneous ischemia, and necrosis. Because of its systemic nature, calciphylaxis is typically a symmetrical, bilaterally-distributed phenomenon. Here, we present an unusual case of unilateral leg calciphylaxis in the setting of relative chronic arterial insufficiency of the affected extremity secondary to steal syndrome.
