dc.description.abstract Hypercalcemia is commonly associated with cancer, occurring in around 10-20percent of cancer patients. Hypercalcemia is usually related to solid and non-solid malignancies specifically breast cancer, lung cancer and multiple myeloma. Hypercalcemia has been reported to occur in association with astrocytomas, and uncommonly in gliomas. We report a case of a previously healthy man presenting with glioblastoma multiforme. He was found to have persistently elevated serum calcium and calcitriol with normal parathyroid function. This is the first reported case of hypercalcemia associated with glioblastoma multiforme. © Neuroendocrinology Letters.
