Abstract

We describe a case of calcipbylaxis in a 47-year-old man with alcohol-induced end-stage liver disease and acute renal failure secondary to hepatomnal syndrome. Possible contributing factors included transiently impaired renal function, protein C and S deficiencies, elevated calcium-phosphate product, hyperphosphatemia, low serum albumin, repeated albumin infusions, and elevated alkaline phosphatase level.
