The patient was hospitalized to explain the cause of primer hyperparathyroidism
and evaluate the possible side effects.
associated with a chronic hypothyroid state.
She was referred to the endocrine unit 6 months later where the possibility of primary hyperparathyroidism
was considered due to persistently elevated calcium in spite of the patient being euthyroid.
Because this patient had no biochemical or clinical signs of hyperparathyroidism
but had a history of MEN2A, suspicion for local production of PTH was raised (autotransplantation).
The diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism
is confirmed by using a test that shows parathyroid hormone levels in the blood.
The report provides a snapshot of the global therapeutic landscape of Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
Conclusion: For treatment of primary hyperparathyroidism
, endoscopic thyroidectomy through the anterior chest wall via the areolar approach decreased the incidence rate of complications, as well as promoted the recovery of serum calcium and phosphorous levels, probably by only mildly affecting immune function and thyroid hormone levels.
During the treatment for hyperparathyroidism
the serum calcium, phosphate and parathyroid hormone levels varied from normal to elevated.
Based on the above investigations we reached a diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism
Thus, the etiology of hyperparathyroidism
was adenoma with variable size in our five patients with parathyroid localization in 3 cases and ectopic in 2 cases.
Based on a systemic review of the literature made by JE Witteveen the term 'hungry bone syndrome' has been linked to the severe (serum calcium < 8 mg/dl) and prolonged (longer than 4 days post-surgery hypocalcemia), in the case of a curative treatment (parathyroidectomy) of severe hyperparathyroidism
It also reviews key players involved in the therapeutic development for Secondary Hyperparathyroidism
and special features on late-stage and discontinued projects.
M2 EQUITYBITES-September 21, 2015-Akorn reports availability of Doxercalciferol Injection for secondary hyperparathyroidism
in patients with chronic kidney disease on dialysis
In an outpatient study, seasonal variability did not have a significant effect on 25-hydroxy vitamin D and parathyroid hormone levels in patients with mild primary hyperparathyroidism
, likely because of widespread high vitamin D supplement intake, according to research in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
The common causes of chronic pancreatitis include chronic alcohol abuse, idiopathic pancreatitis, hyperparathyroidism
, hereditary pancreatitis, tropical pancreatitis, autoimmune pancreatitis and hypertriglyceridemia.
