Background: Hypercalcaemia is a risk following stem cell transplant (SCT) for all types of autosomal recessive osteopetrosis (ARO) due to restored osteoclast differentiation. This can be particularly severe in the osteoclast-poor (OP) form involving the tumour necrosis factor receptor superfamily 11A (TNFRSF11A) gene, encoding RANK. Denosumab, a monoclonal antibody blocking RANK activation, has been described for refractory post-SCT hypercalcaemia in two cases. Our case adds n...
