Calciphylaxis is a rare and highly morbid condition that has continued to challenge the medical community since its early descriptions in the scientific literature many decades ago. Calciphylaxis predominantly affects patients with chronic kidney disease treated by dialysis but is also described in patients with normal kidney function. We report a rare case of a patient who presented with calciphylaxis associated with multiple myeloma and rheumatoid arthritis. With a better understanding of its pathophysiology, more effective therapies are being developed.
