Answer

Routine laboratory evaluation is often unrevealing, but possible abnormalities include the following:

  • Hypercalcemia (about 10-13% of patients)

  • Hypercalciuria (about a third of patients)

  • Elevated alkaline phosphatase level

  • Elevated angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) levels

See Workup for more detail.
