Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble molecules responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, magnesium, and phosphate, and multiple other biological effects . High levels of 25(OH) vitamin D can therefore cause refractory hypercalcemia. Suboptimal levels of serum Vitamin D are a global healthcare issue. Recently, Vitamin D has increasingly been recognised to have healthcare benefits beyond Calcium metabolism and bone health. As a result, Vitamin D status assessment and over-thecounter consumption has exponentially increased. However indiscriminate consumption can lead to hypervitaminosis D and its associated complication. This report reviews a case of a patient with hypercalcaemia and Acute Kidney injury as result of Vitamin D intoxication.
