Abstract

PERUCCA P, Ernesto et al. HIPERPARATIROIDISMO PRIMARIO Y EMBARAZO: REPORTE DE UN CASO. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2009, vol.74, n.4, pp.263-266. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262009000400010.

Primary hyperparathyroidism (HPTP) is a disorder characterized by elevated levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH), which leads to hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria, with variable osseous, renal and other systems affectation. HPTP has a prevalence of 1:1000 in general population and is more frequent in women than men. It is very rare during pregnancy, and its complications are produced by hypercalcemia and they can affect the mother and the fetus. We present the case of a 37 year old woman, with a 10+2 weeks pregnancy that was admitted in our Hospital with nephrocalcinosis and urinary tract infection, whom was diagnosed primary hyperparathyroidism, whose etiology was a single parathyroid adenoma.

Keywords : Primary hyperparathyroidism; pregnancy.
