• Hypercalcemia is a rare complication of disseminated carcinoma of the prostate. To our knowledge, only three such patients have had their cases previously reported in the English language literature. Eight patients with prostatic cancer and hypercalcemia were seen at Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center, Bronx, NY, within the last six years. In six of the patients, the prostatic carcinoma exhibited unusual histologic patterns.
