Idiopathic scrotal calcinosis, also called dystrophic scrotal calcinosis, is a rare benign condition that causes superficial intradermal scrotal calcifications. We present one such case of a 40-year-old married man who underwent PET/CT scan for staging workup of lymphoma and revealed this rare entity incidentally without any other testicular pathology.
