Özet

Calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) crystal deposition disease has multiple clinical features with variable courses creating several pitfalls in clinical diagnosis. There are number of reported cases mimicking malignant skeletal tumors such as chondrosarcoma. However, no case of CPPD disease with radiographic noncalcified soft tissue mass has been reported in the literature. Here we report a case of CPPD disease clinically mimicking soft tissue tumor with its magnetic resonance imaging appearance and histopathology.
