Özet

Bisphosphonates are used for the treatment of childhood hypercalcaemia, especially that due to malignancies. Here we report the use of intravenous pamidronate for the treatment of hypercalcaemia due to vitamin D intoxication in a 3-month-old infant. Serum calcium levels were normalised without complications. Conclusion: Pamidronate may be used in hypercalcaemia due to vitamin D intoxication in paediatric cases resistant to hydration, diuretics or corticosteroids.
