Abstract
A 45 yrs old lady presented with Reynaud’s phenomena involving bilateral fingers and toes with chronic ulceration of right middle finger. She was diagnosed as having limited systemic sclerosis and calcinosis of fingers. Finger calcinosis was confirmed by x ray of hands.
She was treated with calcium channel blockers and intralesional steroid application. Medical therapy for calcinosis has limited benefit, and recurrence is also common after surgical excision. Patient was investigated for other organ involvement in systemic sclerosis.

Key words: Systemic sclerosis, Calcinosis
