Calciphylaxis is a rare complication in patients undergoing hemodialysis. The pathogenesis and risk factors for this disease are poorly understood, although an association with secondary hyperparathyroidism has been suggested. Only two cases of lower-extremity revascularization of patients with calciphylaxis appear in the literature; this report adds two more.
