We report the case of a 64-year-old man refered to our department for edema and tiredness in legs, who had been followed up for chronic renal failure and secondary hyperparathyroidism. He had no history of medical treatment for deep venous thrombosis, however, computed tomography (CT) revealed extensive calcification in veins of the lower half of the body. Since peripheral venous calcification is a rare disease and advances slowly, imaging the chronological progress of calcification is difficult. This case suggests the usefulness of CT for diagnosing and treating peripheral venous calcification.
