In brief: Calciphylaxis
An electrolyte disturbance noted at dialysis with peturbation in calcium and phosphate may indicate incipient problems.
However, clinically, calciphylaxis is marked by irregular patches of dark purple/black eschars on the skin. These patches are tender. Additionally, the superficial veins may be dark (indicating thrombus inside the vessel).

In brief: Calciphylaxis
In end stage renal patients, purple violet skin lesions that slowly become necrotic.
They are very very painful.
