Five cases of tumoral calcinosis were studied during the period of January-february 1999 in MIMER medical college, Talegaon, a rural place 35kms. from Pune. All the Five patients were females residing in nonendemic area for Dracunculosis. They were from 5th-6th decade. They were otherwise healthy and had normal serum calcium and phosphorus levels and no eosinophilia. All had large, hard subcutaneous lump around hip joint. The skin overlying the swelling was normal. Histologically all cases showed similar morphology, the lesions were composed of large and small deposits of calcium. The foreign-body giant cell reaction was seen in two cases. There were no eosinophils and lymphocytes. On multiple sectioning none of the cases revealed any evidence of dead or living parasite. Old and recent necrosis was absent. These cases are presented since the condition is comparatively rare and it appeared in crops in our Institute.
