Recent reports have fueled on interest in the prevalance and significance of metastatic calcium deposition in patients with chronic hyperparathyroidism. Nephrocarcinosis and cutaneous cacifications have been recognized in patients with chronic renal failure, but the hypercalcemic crisis and systemic calcinosis are extremely rare in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. We experienced a patient with primary hyperparathyroidism, presented with hypercalcemic crisis and metastatic calcification in the lungs, stomach, liver, and disappeared by successful parathyroidectomy.
Key Words: Hyperparathyroidism, Hypercalcemic crisis
