Background: Mutations in the ENPP1 gene have been identified in individuals with generalized arterial calcification of infancy (GACI), a life-threatening disorder characterized by calcification in the blood vessels, because of reduced availability of pyrophosphate. We describe a case of GACI due to a novel ENPP1 mutation.Presenting problem: The patient, born at term to non-consanguineous parents, was referred to us at birth with weak femoral pulses for e...
