ABSTRACT

Hyperparathyroidism is characterised by high serum calcium levels and inappropriately increased production of parathyroid hormone. In this study, we have evaluate d the clinical profile of 13 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (two patients with non-medullary thyroid carcinoma) and 3 patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism. Although it has been suggested that the clinical profile of the hyperparathyroidism has changed over the past three decades, in our population 61.5% of the patients show nephrolithiasis and most of the patients show skeletal involvement with various severity including pathological fractures. These results indicate that hyperparathyroidism remains undetected and not diagnosed early enough in our population.
