We report here a case of bilateral pelviureteric junction stones in a 2 months old baby who presented with acute onset anuria and sepsis. The baby was diagnosed to have acute postrenal failure due to obstructive bilateral ureteric stones based on the findings of ultrasound scan. This was a rare case of drug-induced hypercalcemia resulting from inappropriate iatrogenic supplementation of calcium and Vitamin D. Baby later developed hydrocephalus as sequelae to meningitis. Magnetic resonance imaging of brain showed periventricular calcification probably a sequelae to hypercalcemia. Our case emphasizes the need for considering iatrogenic hypercalcemia as a cause of urolithiasis and other forms of calcification in infants.
