Primary hyperparathyroidism has become a relatively common disorder of endocrine function. Recent investigations of parathyroid function have contributed greatly to our understanding of calcium metabolism. The apparent increased incidence of primary hyperparathyroidism and new developments in the field should make this book timely.
The authors provide a general description of hyperparathyroidism. There are sections devoted to history, anatomy, etiology, pathology, diagnosis, and management. Important topics include the changing clinical spectrum of primary hyperparathyroidism, the decrease of severely affected patients with target organ damage, and the increase of asymptomatic patients with mild hypercalcemia discovered on routine multichannel screening tests.
