Calcifying tendonitis remains an enigmatic condition

The pathology shows hydroxyapatite crystals lying in extra-cellular matrix vesicles

There are two presentations, acute and chronic

Acute episodes can be treated by analgesia and barbottage

Chronic lesions can be treated conservatively, or by excision of the calcific deposit, arthroscopically or by barbottage.
