Calciphylaxis is characterized by cutaneous ischemia and necrosis and is associated with a very high mortality rate. It usually affects patients who are undergoing dialysis or who have received a kidney transplant. There is no optimal treatment, but parathyroidectomy has shown some benefit. We report herein a case of a patient with calciphylaxis and secondary hyperparathyroidism who was successfully treated with cinacalcet hydrochloride, a calcimimetic.
