• We studied two children with neuroblastoma in whom hypercalcemia developed as the initial manifestation in one and during the course of therapy in the other. Serum parathyroid hormone activity was elevated in the patient in whom the test for it was performed. Mithramycin controlled the hypercalcemia in one patient and tumor resection with radiation therapy and chemotherapy was sufficient for control of this complication in the other.
