Abstract

We describe the case of a 58 years old woman suffering from chondrocalcinosis associated with familial benign hypercalcemia. This is a disease, with an autosomal dominant trait, characterized by hypercalcemia, hypocalciuria and normal or occasionally increased levels of serum parathyroid hormone. Since also hyperparathyroidism is frequently linked with chondrocalcinosis, it is very important to discriminate patients with familial benign hypercalcemia from those with hyperparathyroidism, because the therapeutical approach of these conditions is different.
