We report the case of a 50-year-old female suffering from angina pectoris with a positive exercise test and normal coronary arteriography. Nifedipine relieved the angina. Laboratory tests demonstrated hypercalcaemia and led to a diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma. Surgical removal of the adenoma resulted in normalization of calcaemia and, during 4-year follow-up, she has had no angina. Two exercise tests in this period were negative.
