Background: Metabolic bone disease of prematurity (MBDP) is characterized by decreased bone density as a result of insufficient mineral deposition in the bones of premature babies. Although the primary cause of MBDP is different from one case to another; either hypocalcaemia or hypophosphataemia, the main current practice is to treat it with phosphate supplements.Objectives: To emphasize the rule of parathyroid hormone and vitamin D investigations in MBD...

Malignant hypercalcemia showing parathyroid adenoma in a patient with renal impairment

Mohamed Tizgha

Introduction: hyperparathyroidism is usually diagnosed at a pauci or asymptomatic stage. However, in rare cases, the diagnosis is made at the stage of major threatening hypercalcemia. This diagnostic delay may be responsible for complications such as chronic end stage renal disease (CRRD).Observation: we report the case of a 64-year-old patient referred to the endocrinology department for primary hyperparathyroidism, with no particular family history and...
