A 1.35 kg, three-year-old, female, Yorkshire terrier was referred to the veterinary medical teaching hospital of Chungnam National University with an alopecia, scale, polydipsia and polyuria. During hospitalization, the patient revealed swelling and pain of all four foot pads. The hematology indicated nonregenerative anemia. Blood serum chemistry revealed elevation of BUN, serum creatinine and phosphorus contents. Radiographs of feet revealed increased radiodensity in the soft tissue of the foot pad. In ultrasonographs of abdomen, kidneys showed diffusely echodense renal cortex with loss of the normal corticomedullary boundary. Fine needle aspiration of the swollen pad cysts contained a amorphous basophillic chalky, white and pasty material. The culture result was negative for bacteria. In conclusion, it was diagnosed as metastatic calcinosis circumscripta secondary to chronic renal failure. An oral charcoal absorbent and aluminum hydroxide were used to treat this condition. After six weeks treatment, hyperphosphatemia was corrected and metastatic calcinosis circumscriptawas not presented any more.
