Abstract Biopsy specimen from 18 patients suffering from calcifying tendinitis were stained with different histologic and histochemical techniques. The results of these examinations seem to indicate that we are not dealing with a dystrophic calcification, but with a cell-mediated calcification of a living tissue. The process resembles an incomplete endochondral ossification.
