Figure 11: Nonuremic calciphylaxis in primary hyperparathyroidism. (a) Concentric calcification and medial sclerosis involving a septal blood vessel with barely any inflammation (×4). An earlier superficial biopsy lacked obvious vascular calcification but revealed stippled pattern of calcium deposition in the basement membrane of sweat glands (b) (×40) and internal elastic lamina of medium size blood vessels (c) on a von Kossa stain (×40)
