Abstract

We report a woman with hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism. Hemodialysis using a phosphorus-enriched, conventional, calcium-containing dialysis solution resulted in the simultaneous correction of hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia, resulting in a marked improvement of the patient's impaired mental status.
