A case of hypercalcemia in an elderly woman diagnostic conduct and discussion



A case of hypercalcemia in an elderly woman diagnostic conduct and discussion



Archivio di Medicina Interna 40(1): 31-40



A case of hypercalcemia is described, where, due to its late recognition, a considerable amount of clinical data has been cumulated. This has offered the opportunity for a systematic analysis, as complete as possible, of the various stages of development of a hypercalcemic syndrome, and at the same time to point out the specific pathogenic implications. The therapy which has been applied, even if limited in duration, may offer useful suggestions for similar cases.
