Hypercalcaemic stupor as a presentation of lymphosarcoma.
  1. G D Schott


    A case is reported of a 32 year old woman with a two year history suggestive of schizophrenia who presented in stupor. This proved to be due to hypercalcaemia with a concomitant high cerebrospinal fluid calcium concentration associated with previously unsuspected lymphosarcoma. Necropsy revealed no significant intracranial abnormality, and mechanisms that may have been involved in the production of the impaired consciousness are discussed.
