28 ( 4 )  , pp.369 - 372 , 2016-12 , Showa University Society
A 60-year-old female presented to our clinic with flushing and paresthesia of the face. Deep red facial color was noted, and facial skin paresthesia was confirmed. Multiple subcutaneous calcifications of 1-3mm in diameter were observed by computed tomography (CT), extending from the forehead bilaterally to both cheeks. The patient had received dozens of subcutaneous injections over the last 〜10 years as a regimen of cosmetic surgery to her face, and we concluded that a subcutaneously injected agent had caused the present calcifications.
