GALLO, Jesica; HENARES, Eduardo  and  PAIRA, Sergio. Calciphylaxis of the temporal artery simulating temporal arteritis. Rev. argent. reumatolg. [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.3, pp.15-18. ISSN 0327-4411.

Calciphylaxis is characterized by intense deposition of calcium in small blood vessels, skin, and other organs, described mainly in patients with chronic renal insufficiency, renal transplant of parathyroid dysfunction. To date, there are only seven cases described in literature of calciphylaxis mimicking giant cell arteritis (GCA). In this review, we present the eighth case pathologically documented.
