Aim: Osteoporosis is common in postmenopausal women and in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). PHPT is more prevalent in postmenopausal women. Aim of the present study was to investigate possible predictors of bone mineral density (BMD) in women with PHPT.Methods: 166 consecutive women with PHPT [age: 59.5±13.5 years; Asymptomatic/Symptomatic: 84/82; premenopausal/postmenopausal: 31/135; BMI: 25.6±4.8 kg/m2; PTH: 234.2±287.3 pg/...

We aimed to eval...
