Vascular calcification, traditionally regarded as a dystrophic process, has recently been interpreted as a bone-like biologically regulated phenomenon. Because temporal arteries which also contain calcifications are easily available from biopsies of older individuals with suspected giant cell arteritis, we studied the morphogenesis of this calcification in comparison with the development of fetal bone.
