abstract

  • Breast microcalcification and arterial calcification are not rare in the normal population and are not of diagnostic value. The presence of both of these findings, especially with skin thickening or axillary skin calcification, should suggest a diagnosis of PXE. The majority of breast calcifications in PXE are benign.
