Hypercalcemia ; Hepatic tuberculosis
In this report, a 70-year-old female patient was detected with laboratory findings of hypercalcemia. The most common causes of hypercalcemia are primary hyperparathyroidism and malignant disease. Her laboratory tests did not show any evidence for neither primary hyperparathyroidism nor malignant diseases. Thus, granulomatous disease was suspected as the cause of the hypercalcemia. Liver MRI(magnetic resonance image) was performed on the subject, which suggested the presence of hepatic tuberculosis and sarcoidosis. Because the chest x-ray did not show a definite tuberculous lesion, we performed a laparoscopic liver biopsy for a final diagnosis. Findings from the biopsy specimen showed typical tuberculosis. After treatment with tuberculosis medication, hypercalcemia of the subject was resolved. Hypercalcemia is a well recognized as a possible complication of active pulmonary tuberculosis. But one should consider hepatic tuberculosis without pulmonary tuberculosis as a cause of hypercalcemia
