    Abstract

    Investigation of a patient with hypercalcaemia, hypophosphataemia, and nephrocalcinosis failed to lead to a clear diagnosis. Neither primary hyperparathyroidism nor primary incomplete renal tubular acidosis could explain all the biochemical features, and it seems that more than one fundamental abnormality may have been present.
