Excess calcium and/or phosphate allows for the formation and precipitation of calcium salts. In chronic renal failure a number of mechanisms lead to altered phosphate and calcium metabolism: • Decreased renal excretion of phosphate leads to hyperphosphataemia. • Hyperphosphataemia results in a compensatory rise in parathyroid hormone (PTH) in an attempt to excrete phosphate. The rise in PTH results in an increase in phosphate absorption from the gut and also Calcinosis/calcinosis cutis mobilises more calcium from the bones, resulting in more calcium being available to precipitate with phosphate.
