Calcific uremic arteriolopathy in hemodialyzed patients.


PMID 24157123

Abstract

In the present article, we discuss the case of 67-year-old female patient diagnosed with inferior limbs calciphylaxis and hemodialyzed since 2006. The clinical manifestations and pathological lab findings are typical for this rare and extremely severe complication in chronic hemodialyzed individuals. The favorable treatment response to sodium thiosulfate, not often used as elected therapy in international studies, represents the particularity of the case.
