Objective: Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is one of the most common endocrine disorders, with a female to male ratio of 3:1. Currently most patients with PHPT are asymptomatic. However, data about the gender impact on the clinical presentation of PHPT are lacking.Methods: We evaluated the difference in symptoms and biochemical parameters between men and women with PHPT in a single center series of 417 patients.Results: Male PHP...

Introduction: Current guidelines for the management of asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism (A-pHPT) recommend that 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels should be assessed in all patients and vitamin D deficiency (VDD) should be cautiously corrected. It is unknown whether VDD affects the probability to meet surgical criteria currently proposed for A-pHPT. Aim of study was to evaluate whether VDD recognition affects the probability to meet surgical criteria in A-pHPT patients.<p ...

Introduction: In primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) bone involvement is frequent. In women with PHPT it has been previously reported that menopausal status together with PTH, calcium levels and renal function are independent predictors of bone density. In male subjects, the impact of PHPT on bone status is less defined.Aim of the study: To investigate this study was possible predictors of bone mineral density (BMD) in a series of male subjects affected b...
