Abstract

Idiopathic Arterial Calcification Infancy is a well-documented rare entity that usually occurs within the first few months of life. Use of CT as a primary investigative modality in the diagnosis of IACI has not been frequently reported. In our case, using CT scan, arterial calcification in the chest and abdomen was demonstrated and the diagnosis was made easily. Causes of death, imaging and treatment modalities were reviewed from literature.
