Abstract

Myocardial calcification is a rare and life-threatening condition that is a recognised complication of ischaemic heart disease, cardiac surgery, rheumatic fever and myocarditis. It is distinct from coronary artery or valvular calcification, and can be seen in patients with abnormal calcium metabolism1 . Its presence in the context of sepsis is less well recognised and the mechanisms responsible are poorly understood. We review the relevant literature and propose a mechanistic theory for its pathogenesis
