How do I manage hypercalcaemia during pregnancy?

Amir Sam

Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom.

Hypercalcaemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism during pregnancy may be associated with maternal and foetal complications as well as neonatal tetany. Asymptomatic women with mild hypercalcaemia may be managed conservatively. Symptomatic patients or those with severe hypercalcaemia should be offered parathyroidectomy in the second trimester. This session will summarise the current practice in the management of patients with hypercalcaemia during pregnancy at Hammersmith Hospital.
