Hypercalcaemia is most commonly caused by primary hyperparathyroidism or malignancy. Vitamin D intoxication, also a cause of hypercalcaemia, is mostly caused by excessive administration of vitamin D-containing medications and excessive intake of foods fortified with vitamin D. We present a young cricketer, with recurrent vomiting due to hypercalcaemia and hypervitaminosis D, who used to drink large volumes of soup prepared by boiling long beef bones, for many months. This case presentation highlights the importance of in-depth dietary history for arriving at proper diagnosis
