Abstract

Hypercalcemia is not common, and occurs more frequently in children than in adults. Left untreated, hypercalcemia could result in a profound impact on growth and development. We report a case of recurrent idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia with poor weight gain, constipation, and a renal stone. We successfully treated the infantile hypercalcemia with a low-calcium diet and intravenous pamidronate.
