Calcinosis cutis, an uncommon disorder characterized by hydroxyapatite crystals of calcium phosphate deposited in the skin, has been described infrequently in childhood. Cutaneous calcification may be divided into four major categories: dystrophic, metastatic, idiopathic, and iatrogenic. Here, we report an example of iatrogenic type with a 4-year-old boy who diagnosed with Burkitt's lymphoma, and developed calcinosis cutis secondary to a tumour lysis syndrome with induction chemotherapy.

Keywords: Calcinosis cutis, Malignancy, Tumour lysis syndrome.

Kalsinozis kutis, deride kalsiyum fosfat hidroksiapatit kristallerinin birikimi ile karakterize çocukluk çağında nadir görülen bir patolojidir. Derideki kalsifikasyon, distrofik, metastatik, idiyopatik ve iyatrojenik olarak dört ana gruba ayrılabilir. Burada, Burkitt lenfoma tanısı konulan dört yaşında bir erkek olguda indüksiyon tedavisi sırasında gelişen tümör lizis sendromuna sekonder iyatrojenik kalsinozis kutis tablosu sunulmakta ve literatür bilgileri ışığında tartışılmaktadır.
