Objective: Granuloma-forming diseases such as sarcoidosis are associated with extra-renal synthesis of 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1, 25(OH)2 D]. Here, we describe a case of extensive skin lesions associated with mineral oil injections in which we provide evidence for cutaneous granuloma synthesis of 1,25(OH)2 D in the pathogenesis of the patient's hypercalcemia.Methods: Analysis of expression of the 1-a OHase (CYP27b1) was carried out by immunohistochemical analysis of involved skin.Results: In involved skin, expression of CYP27b1 was found in the dermis, where it is not normally expressed. Successful management of hypercalcemia was achieved with glucocorticoids.Conclusions: Hypercalcemia associated with mineral oil induced skin lesions is likely driven by unregulated expression of CYP27b1 by inflammatory monocytes and macrophages infiltrating the dermis.
