Familial tumoral calcinosis (FTC) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the progressive deposition of calcified masses in cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues, which results in painful ulcerative lesions and severe skin and bone infections. Two major types of FTC have been recognized: hyperphosphatemic FTC (HFTC) and normophosphatemic FTC (NFTC)…….more…..
