Summary

Hypercalcemia of malignancy (HCM) can be the first symptom leading to diagnosis and initiation of treatment in cancer patients. This short review presents a real-life case, discusses its validity in light of recent recommendations and guidelines, and ultimately aims to give a comprehensive overview how to treat and avoid common pitfalls in HCM.
