Calcinosis cutis is the deposition of insoluble calcium salts within cutaneous tissue. It may be divided into four major subtypes: dystrophic, metastatic, idiopathic, and iatrogenic. The most common subtype is dystrophic calcinosis cutis. It can occur as a result of local tissue injury. We herein present a child with dystrophic calcinosis cutis developed following trauma and successfully treated with CO2 laser.
