In brief: No cure, can treat
Calciphylaxis occurs in long term kidney failure as the name suggests it involves abnormal calcium and phosphorus metabolism .
The associated wounds were once considered unhealable but that doesn't have to be the case. A good wound specialist using very cautious and gentle wound techniques can treat this type of wound.

In brief: Unfortunately, no.
Calciphylaxis is caused by chronic kidney disease and end stage renal disease.
It is a disease of vascular calcification that causes skin necrosis. The best treatment is prevention by controlling phosphate and calcium levels.
