Ectopic production of calcitriol by non-hodgkin lymphoma as a cause of hypercalcemia: case report

Alarcon Elvira , Tome Mariana , Bautista Carmen , Gonzalez Daniel

Introduction: Hypercalcemia of malignancy usually appears in patients with osteolytic metastasis and in those patients with humoral hypercalcemia due to secretion of PTHrp by the tumor. Hypercalcemia due to calcitriol production by the tumor is uncommon (<1% of cases of hypercalcemia of malignancy). It is the cause of virtually all cases of hypercalcemia in patients with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and approximately one third of cases in non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It has als...

Diaz Maria , Miquet Johanna , Sotelo Ana , Turyn Daniel , Gonzalez Lorena

Growth hormone (GH) is involved in body growth and metabolism. This hormone is used for the treatment of various clinical conditions and is administrated subcutaneously once daily or 3 times a week. The chronic use of GH has side effects; among them, the increase in tumor incidence. GH activates pathways related with oncogenesis not only by the activation of its specific receptor, but also by transactivation and regulation of the expression of the epidermal growth factor recep...
