Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is a result of an excessive autonomous secretion of PTH from one or more parathyroid glands.
In bone metabolism, vitamin D increases the plasma levels of calcium and phosphorus, regulates osteoblast and osteoclast activity and combats PTH hypersecretion, promoting bone formation and preventing/treating osteoporosis.
The presence of an increased PTH with a calcium concentration below the RI along with the features of short stature and overweight should raise the suspicion of pseudohypoparathyroidism (PHP).
