hyperparathyroidism
HYPERPARATHYROIDISM

Hyperparathyroidism is a condition wherein there is an excessive production of parathyroid hormone (PTH).

Primary hyperparathyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder and an important cause of hypercalcemia in ambulatory patients.

Classic signs and symptoms include bone disease, kidney stones and hypercalcinosis.

Primary goal of pharmacological therapy is to normalize calcium levels.
