Hypocalcemia, hyperparathyroidism, hypovitaminosis D, hypocalcitoninemia and decreased bone mass are side effects of several anticonvulsant drugs. Since calcitonin inhibits the mineral mobilization of bone and augments minerals bone content, combined therapy with calcitonin, calcium, vitamin-C and vitamin-D was administrated to a patient with severe anticonvulsant disturbances of bone metabolism. Calcitonin hypersensitivity was evident. The symptomatology, characterized by the rare hypocalcemic hyperpyrexia, regressed after calcium infusion.
