Calcific myonecrosis, often reported in the setting of prior trauma or compartment syndrome, has traditionally been treated with surgical debridement; however, these cases are often complicated by poor wound closure and poor healing. Serial percutaneous aspirations, instead, have been proposed as an alternative treatment option. This is the first report, to our knowledge, of the use of ultrasound guidance in the aspiration of calcific myonecrosis as an aid in management.
