Acro-osteolysis is a rare disease characterized by bone resorption involving the distal phalanges of the hand. We present a unique case of progressive acro-osteolysis of the distal phalanges and articular calcifications in a patient with scleroderma. The calcified deposit in a proximal interphalangeal joint was excised under local anesthesia. The medical treatment was arranged under the supervision of a rheumatologist.
