Abstract

It is rare for small lymphocytic B‐cell malignancies to be associated with osteolytic bone lesions and/or hypercalcemia. The authors present an unusual case of well‐differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma (DWDL) in a 70‐year‐old man who had osteolytic bone lesions and subsequently developed severe refractory hypercalcemia. The possible etiologic mechanisms responsible for these findings are discussed, and a brief review of the literature is presented.
