The clinical features are acute onset with severe tenderness, swelling, painful limitation of motion, radiologic manifestation of periarticular calcification composed of hydroxyapatite crystals and spontaneous resolution. We experienced 2 cases of acute calcific periarthritis of the elbows treated conservatively.
