          Abstract

          Hypercalcemia in malignant lymphoma is not common. Our case of malignant lymphoma with multiple bony lesions showed hypercalcemia (13 mg/dl) at the time of bone marrow relapse. The serum level of parathyroid hormone-related peptide increased to 142 pmol/l, which may be secreted by malignant lymphoma cells. The course of the patient was aggressive and she died from bone marrow relapse after 6 months of treatment including high-dose methotrexate, which caused acute nonoliguric renal failure. At autopsy there was extensive calcium deposition in the lungs, kidneys and pancreas and prominent tubular damage of kidneys.
