Idiopathic calcinosis cutis is a rare disorder and occurs in the absence of known tissue injury or systemic metabolic defect. It is a skin calcification process with abnormal deposits of calcium phosphate in the skin in various parts of the body. It is a rare and benign syndrome which does not cause any late complication and whose prognosis is therefore favourable. Hereby, I am reporting a case of 40 years old male who presented with multiple asymptomatic calcified nodules in the scrotum with normal lab findings. Excision of the nodule on histopathological examination revealed foci of calcification separated by fibrous septa in the dermis.
