• A patient with the clinical manifestations of polycythemia and hypercalcemia underwent an extensive examination for occult neoplasm. No malignancy was found; however, a parathyroid adenoma was excised. After its removal, the hypercalcemia and polycythemia disappeared during a two-year follow-up period.
