Hypercalcemia is a definite but rare cause of acute pancreatitis. It is often overlooked in the presence of more common etiological factors such as gallstones, alcohol and trauma. Cerebral infarction secondary to hypercalcemia has also been described. We have done a literature review to explore the possible pathological processes causing cerebral infarction in hypercalcemic patients.
