Abstract

Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) has become one of the commonest endocrine disorders during past few decades. Clinical presentation varies according to the extent to which the biochemical screening is being routinely carried out in clinical evaluation. Even though data from western countries show increased incidence, PHPT is still under-diagnosed in Sri Lanka. Here we report a case of PHPT detected during the evaluation of an incidentally found hypercalcemia in a postmenopausal female patient.
