Calcinosis cutis is a disorder characterized by the deposition of insoluble calcium salts in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It is separated into five subtypes, namely dystrophic calcification, metastatic calcification, idiopathic calcification, iatrogenic calcification, and calciphylaxis. Idiopathic calcification occurs without any underlying tissue damage or metabolic disorder. We here report a rare case of congenital idiopathic calcinosis cutis associated with aplasia cutis congenita.
