          Massive soft tissue calcification involving the abdomen of a dialysis patient is described. As the result of severe secondary hyperparathyroidism associated with intensive calcifications, the patient was disabled and confined to a wheelchair. Following parathyroidectomy, soft tissue calcifications resolved remarkably, symptoms were relieved and the patient was able to walk. Our patient presented an unusual site of soft tissue calcification in secondary hyperparathyroidism and showed an example of complete resorption of soft tissue calcification after parathyroidectomy.
