Inordinate administration of Vitamin D beyond required doses and duration occurs as a sporadic event among frequent empirical therapies of pharmacological Vitamin D. Such instances lead to Vitamin D intoxication. Systemic hypertension is an unsuspected after-effect of Vitamin D toxicity in a child unlike other toxicity effects such as hypercalcemia, neurological deterioration, etc., Here, we report a case of a 1-year-old child who developed acute hypertension and severe hypercalcemia due to Vitamin D toxicity which was masked by initial dehydration such as illness and brief review of literature about clinical entity...

Wilson disease is a rare genetic hepatic and neurological disorder of copper accumulation. Trientine is usually used as a second line in the management of patients with this condition. We present a case of a large overdose of Trientine (60 g) resulting in self-limiting dizziness and vomiting with no further clinical sequelae or significant biochemical abnormalities. This case shows that Trientine has a good safety profile and hence could be used as a first line treatment in patients with Wilson's disease who suffer from psychiatric complications and who might be at risk of self-harm...
