Soft tissue calcification may be an unspecific local response or cause pain and present as part of a complex underlying disease. It can be exquisitely painful when located in the pulp of the digits. In this paper we describe a new minimally invasive technique for the treatment of finger calcinosis in patients with CREST syndrome (calcinosis, Raynaud’s phenomenon, esophageal hypomotility, sclerodactyly, telengectasia). A rose head or micropoint burr on a minidriver or microaire system is used to disrupt the calcific deposit. Healing is usually rapid.
