Rare case of epiglottic calcification with a unique presentation

A 55-year-old male presented to outpatient otolaryngology clinic with intermittent foreign body sensation and soreness in his throat for one week. He denied any dysphagia to solid or liquid foods. Diagnostic fiberoptic laryngoscopy was unremarkable. CT neck without contrast done on his initial presentation reveals multiple small calcific densities throughout the epiglottis. There is no evidence of mucosal break or inflammatory changes. His prior CT neck from 9 years ago was unremarkable.

    Does the patient have any metabolic disorder? Hypercalcemia? How does the cartilage looks like in othger body areas (e.g. menisci, TFCC etc.)
