Scrotal calcinosis is an uncommon benign disorder of the scrotal skin characterised by multiple calcified intradermal nodules that occur in the presence of normal calcium and phosphate metabolism. A 32 years old male comes to the outpatient department with the complaints of progressively increasing multiple painless nodules in the scrotum area in 6 months. He did not have any other medical comorbidities. There was no any discharge from the nodule. On physical examination, multiple nodules on the scrotum and nontender, subcutaneous nodules were studded within the scrotal wall.
