Abstract 

Hypercalcemia in infants is uncommon but has potentially serious sequelae.

The paper provides additional information as to the mechanisms of calcium dysregulation in idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia, Williams syndrome, vitamin D intoxication, and parathyroid and parathyroid-related protein disturbances.
