1/19. Acute calcific periarthritis in scleroderma.

    Three patients with limited cutaneous scleroderma (crest syndrome) and acute calcific periarthritis are presented. "Chalky" bursal effusion in one patient demonstrated masses of calcium hydroxyapatite crystals. In contrast to idiopathic acute calcific periarthritis, resorption of periarticular calcifications after resolution of acute attacks occurs both less frequently and incompletely in scleroderma associated acute calcific periarthritis.

2/19. Acute calcific tendinitis of the finger--a case report.

    Acute calcific tendinitis of the hand is rare and often misdiagnosed as infection, fracture or periarthritis. It frequently occurs in peri-menopausal women and is caused by deposits of hydroxyapatite crystals. We describe acute calcific tendinitis of the flexor digitorum superficialis insertion in an elderly man taking oral anticoagulants. The differential diagnoses and recommended treatment are discussed.

3/19. Acute calcific periarthritis of proximal interphalangeal joint in a professional golfer 's hand.

    This report describes a 22-yr-old professional golfer with acute calcific periarthritis of the proximal interphalangeal joint of the 4th finger. We considered that the major cause for this condition may be the repeated minor traumas to the affected site. Also, since this condition is self-limiting, a correct diagnosis is required to avoid unnecessary tests and surgery.

4/19. A case of probable hydroxyapatite deposition disease (HADD) of the hip.

    We describe a patient with acute calcific periarthritis in an unusual site, the ilio-femoral ligament. The clinical findings in this patient resembled those of septic arthritis. T2*-weighted images with gradient field echo clearly showed foci of low signal intensity in this region, corresponding to the calcification shown on plain radiographs, and increased signal intensity around the foci, representing edema. These signal intensities were diagnostic of the disease.

5/19. Rapidly progressive calcific periarthritis occurring in a patient with lupus nephritis receiving chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.

    We present a patient who developed rapidly progressive calcific periarthritis while receiving chronic ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. She developed chronic renal failure on the basis of lupus nephritis. Hydroxyapatite crystals were isolated from periarticular deposits and identified using phase contrast light microscopy and electron microscopy. Conservative management using phosphate binding agents and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs was unsuccessful and lesions were excised surgically.

6/19. Recurrent calcific periarthritis leading to erosive osteoarthritis.

    Over a period of 31 years the patient described had recurrent attacks of acute calcific periarthritis at multiple sites. In the latter years of her follow-up she has developed an erosive polyarticular osteoarthritis at sites previously affected by calcific periarthritis and we speculate that there may be a pathogenetic link between these two conditions in some patients.

7/19. Hydroxyapatite deposition disease presenting as calcific periarthritis in a 14-year-old girl.

    We report a case of hydroxyapatite deposition disease presenting as acute periarthritis in a 14-year-old girl with typical radiological features and clinical course. We also review the clinical and laboratory features to increase awareness of this entity.

8/19. Calcified periarthritis at multiple sites including lumbar intervertebral discs. Report of a case.

    A case with calcified periarthritis at peripheral sites and calcification in intervertebral discs gives support to the perception of a distinct disease entity as proposed by SANDSTROM. The possible significance of genetic factors is discussed.

9/19. Hydroxyapatite deposition disease.

    Hydroxyapatite crystals are a common cause of periarticular disease, but recent studies have shown that they may also be deposited intra-articularly, either as a primary phenomenon or secondary to another disease. A continuum of abnormalities from monoarticular periarthritis to polyarticular disease and finally joint destruction may occur.

10/19. Acute calcific periarthritis in a child.

    We wish to present an account of a child who developed acute calcification in his thenar eminence to highlight the difficulty in differentiation between calcific periarthritis, acute infection, on clinical grounds. Calcific periarthritis is due to hydroxyapatite crystal deposits in bursae, tendons and ligaments (Bonavita 1980) with characteristic radiographic appearances of opacities of variable density and shape around joints (Hitchcock 1959). The condition was first described in the shoulder, by Duplay in 1870 (Sandstrom 1938) and this remains the most commonly affected site. The hip, elbow, wrist, knee and ankle may also be involved but involvement of the hand is uncommon. Involvement in this site was first described in 1924 by Cohen (Carroll 1955). The previously reported age span ranged from thirteen years upwards, with an average of forty-five years, both sexes being equally affected (Currey 1970, Hitchcock 1959, Bonavita 1980).
