Calcific uremic arteriolopathy commonly known as calciphylaxis is a rare, life-threatening, vasculopathy affecting approximately 4% of patients with end stage renal disease. Involvement of the penis is considered an unusual phenomenon indicating a higher rate mortality at 69% within 6 months. Management of the condition remains controversial. Here, we report a case of a 40-year-old male, diagnosed with end-stage renal disease since 2016, who presented with firm, necrotic, plaques on his glans penis.

Clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (CADM) presents with the characteristic cutaneous findings of dermatomyositis (DM) but without any clinical evidence of muscle weakness. There is an established association of malignancy in adult-onset DM, although patients with CADM may have a decreased risk of having an associated malignancy compared to classic adult onset DM.

The occurrence of generalized discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) and myelopathy has not been reported to date. DLE in the context of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is considered to have a more benign prognosis. Among the subsets of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE), DLE is the least likely to progress to SLE. Less than 5% of DLE cases progress to SLE. We report a 19-year-old woman who presented with generalized DLE and myelopathy.

Calcemic uremic arteriolopathy (CUA), or usually known as calciphylaxis, is an uncommon, highly morbid disorder presenting with skin ischemia and necrosis. It predominantly occurs, but not exclusively, in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
