INTRODUCTION: Hypercalcemic crisis involves the decompensation of patients in the setting of severe hypercalcemia. It typically occurs in those with chronic hypercalcemia, which in turn is most frequently caused by primary hyperparathyroidism. Presentation varies widely, including multi-organ dysfunction requiring intensive care. We present a case that illustrates not only the severity, but an uncommon circumstance for hypercalcemic crisis.
