PMID:  10468135     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of acute progressive disseminated histoplasmosis complicated with hypercalcemia is reported and the literature is reviewed. This and the previously reported cases imply that physicians should have a higher index of suspicion for this infection and the probable underlying diseases resulting from impaired cellular-mediated immunity when encountering patients with hypercalcaemia.
