Abstract

We report a case of primary hyperparathyroidism with hypercalcaemia in a 16-year-old boy who had spontaneous attack of ventricular tachycardia. To our knowledge, presentation of ventricular tachycardia caused by primary hyperparathyroidism in such a young patient has not been reported in medical literature so far.
