Three dogs treated for systemic blastomycosis with intravenous amphotericin B (one case) or amphotericin B lipid complex (two cases) developed mild to severe calcinosis cutis two to six weeks after the initiation of treatment. Abnormalities in serum calcium and phosphorus during treatment for blastomycosis or at the time of diagnosis of calcinosis cutis were slight or absent. The calcification was not associated with lesions of cutaneous blastomycosis. Calcification was limited to the skin in two cases and may have also involved the kidneys in one. The calcinosis cutis resolved completely in all three dogs with no (two cases) or only palliative (one case) therapy.
