Calcification ) depends on local disturbances of acid-base equilibrium, dispersion of fabric colloids, regulation of limy exchange of endocrine or secretory systems, on change of a condition of protective colloids of blood. According to it distinguish dystrophic, metastatic (limy metastasises) and metabolic calcification. Deposits of lime in the centers of a necrosis (a petrifikata concern to the first at tuberculosis, phleboliths, coprolites, lithopedion, etc.). An example of the second is And. fabrics salts of calcium at a parathyroid osteodystrophy, osteomalacy, a hypervitaminosis of D, etc. when lime before everything is laid in fabrics with the most labile acid-base equilibrium (renal tubules, a mucous membrane of a stomach and pulmonary fabric).
