Dystrophic calcification is deposition of calcium salt in degenerated tissues in the presence of normal calcium and phosphorous metabolism. It usually occurs in injured tissues. The condition may be associated with a variety of systemic disorders. The pathophysiology is still unclear. The case of a 17-year-old boy with dystrophic calcifications over the right masseter muscle is presented here with review of literature. Calcified nodules were surgically excised via an intraoral approach.
