Two patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and disseminated cytomegalovirus infection developed hypercalcemia associated with suppressed parathyroid gland activity. Neither patient had evidence of a malignant, endocrinologic, granulomatous, or drug-related cause for hypercalcemia. Increased osteoclastic bone resorption induced by cytomegalovirus or human T-lymphotropic virus III infection may have been the cause for the hypercalcemia. Physicians should be alert for the occurrence of endocrinologic and metabolic problems in immunosuppressed patients.
