Familial tumoral calcinosis: association with cerebral and peripheral aneurysm formation

Abstract

Two siblings with histologically and radiologically proven tumoral calcinosis presented with cerebral and peripheral aneurysms. The brother died of a ruptured subclavian artery aneurysm after surgical repair of brachial, iliofemoral and coeliac axis aneurysms. Magnetic resonance and catheter angiography in the sister demonstrated marked carotid dysplasia and a left ophthalmic segment aneurysm, not amenable to treatment. We believe this is the first reported case of familial aneurysms in association with tumoral calcinosis.
