Widespread cutaneous and visceral calcification

Dirk M. Elston


It is an honor to comment on the report of multiple calcifications in the skin and viscera by Li et al. The authors present unique findings in a 39 year old man with an 8 year history of abdominal pain, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, and widespread calcifications in skin and viscera associated with a missense mutation in the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) gene: NM-000377; exon9: p.I294T, c. T881C, a mutation associated with congenital neutropenia and thrombocytopenia.
