Scrotal calcinosis is a rare benign condition defined as the presence of several calcified nodules within the scrotal skin. Its pathogenesis remains largely unknown. We hereby report a case of massive scrotal calcinosis which progressively developed for 12 years with a 57-year old patient with no evidence of calcium and phosphorus metabolic disorder. It was a fortuitous finding during a consultation for complete urine retention. We shall discuss the pathological anatomy and therapeutic aspects.
