Abstract

Prostate cancer is a leading cause of cancer death, frequently associated with widespread bone metastases. We report two cases of hypocalcemia following the first dose of denosumab in metastatic hormone refractory prostate cancer, the first case requiring 26 days of intravenous calcium therapy. This is the first report of prolonged hypocalcemia following denosumab in a patient with normal renal function.
