Abstract:

Several theories have been suggested in recent years regarding the mechanisms involved in physiological and pathological tissue calcification, but none are widely accepted at this time. Certain evidence indicates that the development of calcification in cartilage differs from that in bone, and that both of these processes may be unlike pathological calcinosis. However, the concept of a matrix substance acting to bind calcium has received attention from workers studying the various types of tissue calcification. The purpose of this paper is to report our observations on the histochemistry of the acid mucopolysaccharides which may act as matrix materials in the pathogenesis of cutaneous calcinosis. Author
