  • Pathology department's opinion was that the mucosal calcinosis observed in the corpus mucosa could be associated with calcium dysregulation and could also be secondary to medication, and recommended analyzing correlation with clinical findings. (heighpubs.org)
  • treatments
  • Researchers want to learn more about calcinosis to find treatments for it. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The efficacy of other treatments, such as magnesium or aluminum antacids, sodium etidronate, diphosphonates and diltiazem is unclear, but they have been reported to be serviceable in refractory calcinosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Improvement
  • Improvement in dermatomyositis-associated calcinosis of a single lesion by assessing its severity as measured by a difference in Physician Calcinosis Visual Analog Scales. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Improvement in dermatomyositis-associated calcinosis of a single lesion by assessing its hardness as measured by a difference in durometer (Rex durometer Model 1600, Type OO) measurements. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Improvement in dermatomyositis-associated calcinosis as measured by a difference in plain film (x-ray) studies. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • patient
  • In this case, gastric mucosal calcinosis was diagnosed with endoscopic biopsy performed for a patient who presented to our clinic with heartburn and abdominal discomfort. (heighpubs.org)
