Incontinentia pigmenti (IP) is an X-linked dominant disorder that in most cases is considered lethal in males. IP affects the skin, hair, teeth, nails, eyes, and central nervous system. We report a case of persistent hypercalcemia (10.6–11.3 mg/dL) in a 19-month-old Caucasian boy with clinical IP. The proposed mechanism for his hypercalcemia is discussed.
