Calcific myonecrosis is a rare painful, expansile, calcified mass that develops as a result of compartment syndrome in a muscle of lower extremity. Patient usually present several years after trauma as a mass typically in anterior compartment of leg which can be mistaken for soft tissue tumor. Imaging studies can aid in the diagnosis of this less known entity. However, diagnosis is confirmed by histopathologinal findings of linear calcification and central necrosis inside a cavity in a muscle. We report a rare case of calcific myonecrosis involving posterior compartment of leg in a forty three year old female who had presented with pain in right mid-calf region for two weeks. Color Doppler showed small cystic lesion with calcification suggestive of probable neurofibroma for which complete excicion of the lesion was done and diagnosis of calcific myonecrosis was made on histopathological examination.
