Calciphylaxis is a rare manifestation of abnormal calcium metabolism seen in some patients with renal disease. We describe the transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) findings in a patient with calciphylaxis. These findings included calcification of ascending aorta and aortic valve. TEE was normal before the development of calciphylaxis.
