We report the case histories of 2 patients with a rapidly fatal form of acute lymphatic leukemia, who showed severe hypercalcemia during the acute phase of the disease. The pathogenetic mechanism of the hypercalcemia in these two cases was different. A short review of present day theories regarding the pathogenesis of tumor hypercalcemia is presented.
