Difficult hypercalcaemia

Challenges of hypercalcaemia can arise in several points in management: In diagnosis (for example differentiating primary hyperparathyroidism from familial hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia), in emergency management (for example poor response to intravenous saline and bisphosphonates), and in elective management (considering which patients are likely to benefit from parathyroidectomy).

This session will use case examples to explore commonly encountered problems, and discuss the evidence and guidance available to support management decisions.
