A patient with familial benign hypercalcaemia (FBH) who developed relapsing pancreatitis is presented. She underwent distal partial pancreas resection with surgical removal of pancreatic duct stones, and a pancreaticojejunostomy. No further causes for the pancreatitis were found. The present case is remarkable since it is an example of the occurrence of pancreatitis in a previously known patient with hypercalcaemia, and it underlines the severity of the pancreatitis when it occurs in this syndrome.
