Abstract

Obstructive jaundice is seldom considered as a cause of hypocalcemia. We describe the unexpected detection of severe hypocalcemia in a case of primary sclerosing cholangitis presenting with acute abdomen for exploratory laparotomy.

Keywords: Hypocalcemia; Obstructive jaundice; Anesthesia
