Abstract

A patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who developed acute hypercalcemia following chemotherapy was evaluated for skeletal metastases with a whole- body bone scan. Although metastatic disease is an unlikely cause of hypercalcemia, considering the acutely rising serum calcium, the bone scan is useful in excluding multiple metastases as a cause. In addition, the study demonstrated metastatic calcification in multiple organs, including the pancreas which is uncommon, and the liver and spleen, which is rare.
