Summaries for Calciphylaxis

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Calciphylaxis is a disease in which blood vessels (veins and arteries) become blocked by a build-up of calcium in the walls of the vessels, preventing blood from flowing to the skin or internal organs.  The lack of blood flow (ischemia) damages healthy tissue and causes it to die (necrosis).  The most obvious and frequent symptom of calciphylaxis is damage to the skin, as ulcers can develop and become infected easily.  Calciphylaxis can also affect fat tissue, internal organs, and skeletal muscle, causing infections, pain, and organ failure.  These symptoms are often irreversible, and many individuals with calciphylaxis may not survive more than a few months after they are diagnosed due to infection that spreads throughout the body (sepsis), or organ failure.  The exact cause of calciphylaxis is unknown.  Treatments may include medications to reduce pain, antibiotics to treat infections, and various approaches to preventing the development or worsening of this condition.

MalaCards based summary : Calciphylaxis, also known as idiopathic calciphylaxis, is related to osteitis fibrosa and end stage renal failure. An important gene associated with Calciphylaxis is ALB (Albumin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Ca, cAMP and Lipid Signaling and HIF-1-alpha transcription factor network. The drugs sodium thiosulfate and Chelating Agents have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, skin and skeletal muscle, and related phenotypes are secondary hyperparathyroidism and cutis marmorata
