REGUEIRO-GARCIA, Alexandra et al. Clinical case: Refractory hypercalcemia associated to B-cell lymphoma, an oncological emergency. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2015, vol.113, n.4, pp.e207-e210. ISSN 0325-0075.

Hypercalcemia as a paraneoplastic syndrome is rare in children. Therapeutic management is aimed at promoting calciuresis with various pharmacological methods, even with extrarenal purification techniques. The aim of presenting this case is to highlight the importance of early etiologic treatment through chemotherapy as an urgent treatment in a refractory and severe hypercalcemia case, in order to avoid possible secondary complications due to this electrolyte disturbance.

Keywords : Hypercalcemia; Diffuse large-B cell lymphoma; Paraneoplastic syndromes; Children.
