A 54-year-old male diabetic presented with multiple swellings in the scrotal region with a duration of 15 years, which was initially peanut sized and painless and which gradually progressed to 1-1.5 cm in diameter and more than 100 in number. His haematological and biochemical parameters were within normal limits. Fine needle aspiration of the nodule revealed hypocellular smears with a pale pink to bluish coloured granular material in the background. On microscopy, the sections showed calcified nodules and masses with a peripheral giant cell reaction within the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue, which were positive for the Von Kossa stain. It was reported as Idiopathic calcinosis Cutis ÃÂÃÂ Scrotum. Herewith, we are presenting a rare case of extensive idiopathic scrotal calcinosis.
