A 42-year-old female patient who was treated for pulmonary tuberculosis three years ago was admitted to our clinic with complaints of muscle weakness. On chest radiography, a diffuse cavitary lesion and nodular infiltration of the right lung was detected. Sputum acid-fast bacilli were positive, and the patient was diagnosed with pulmonary reactivation tuberculosis. Severe hypercalcemia was observed in the laboratory, and treatment for hypercalcemia was started alongside tuberculosis treatment. The case was presented to literature due to its rarity.
