We report the case of an infant with diffuse subcutaneous fat necrosis following birth asphyxia who had hypercalcemia and the rare complication of venous calcification. The clinical and radiologic findings resolved over 5 months. The disease is characterized by the presence of painless subcutaneous nodules, mainly over bony prominences, possibly associated with hypercalcemia and calcification. Early identification of hypercalcemia will avert its serious sequelae.
