The hypercalcemia of malignancy is a topic that has undergone major changes in the past decade. Before that time, there was considerable controversy over the relative roles of different mediators, on the difficulties in differential diagnosis from the other nonparathyroid causes of hypercalcemia and from primary hyperparathyroidism, and debate over the place of various medical therapies. This review focuses on some of the current issues that face clinicians treating patients with this common complication of the most common malignancies.
