AbstractTwelve cases of eakinosis cutis circumscripta are presented. The available evidence suggest that the lesion is commonly seen in negroes and coloured races. Scrotum is the commonest site of calcinosis cutis circumscripta in males while extremities are the site in females. Although the localisation of the pathological process may be determined by local trauma and friction, the primary change may well be a change in ground substance which later calcifies.
