          Metabolic bone disease due to calcium and vitamin D malabsorption is a well-defined consequence of gastrectomy and to a lesser extent of pancreatic insufficiency.

We describe the case of a man with partial gastrectomy and pancreatectomy with osteomalacia and secondary hyperparathyroidism.
