Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The relation between hypercalcemia and pancreatitis, first described in patients with hyperparathyroidism, is controversial. Other causes of hypercalcemia also have been associated with pancreatitis. In this report, the authors describe a patient with pancreatitis and the milk-alkali syndrome who had the classic triad of hypercalcemia, alkalosis, and renal insufficiency. The authors also review the literature for all the reported cases of pancreatitis associated with hypercalcemia.
