calcification

calcification

introduction

  • it is possible that all extracellular mineralisation in the body occurs via secretion of membrane vesicles from cells which then form mineralo-organic nanoparticles called bions - non-living "nanobacteria" / nanoparticles which then can self-propagate

soft tissue calcification

dystrophic

  • occurs in abnormal tissue, often with impaired blood supply

metastatic

  • calcification in normal tissue due to hypercalcaemia or hypervitaminosis D
  • intracranial calcification occurs in hypoparathyroidism and pseudo-hypoparathyroidism

secondary to bone of joint disease

  • calcified cartilage, tendon, or periosteum

idiopathic calcification

  • calcinosis circumscripta
  • calcinosis universalis
  • myositis ossificans
