We present a 50-year-old male with renal cell carcinoma and hypercalcemia presenting as acute pancreatitis. The sudden onset of epigastralgia, acute pancreatitis and hypercalcemia with raised parathyroid-like peptide levels in this patient could not be explained except for renal cell carcinoma. This is the first report of such a complication in renal cell carcinoma. The rare presentation and management with a review of the literature is described.
