Abstract

Metastatic soft-tissue calcification is a well-known complication of chronic renal failure. We describe pseudohypertension (that is, cuff systolic blood pressure higher than 300 mm Hg without intravascular hypertension) due to diffuse arterial calcification occurring in a patient with chronic renal failure.
