MEDINA CUBILLA, Rocío Maridey; SOTO VALIENTE, Sandra María  and  PEREZ, Vivian María Liz. Patient with pathological right ulnar fracture. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2021, vol.8, n.1, pp.183-186. ISSN 2312-3893.

Hyperparathyroidism is an eminently clinical disease that occurs when there is an increase in the production of parathyroid hormone, greater than the needs that the body requires, leading to hypercalcemia, bone and kidney disorders to a variable degree. We present the case of a 64-year-old patient with hyperparathyroidism secondary to a parathyroid adenoma that was diagnosed by chance finding, after the patient had been presenting frequent bone pain of more than a year of evolution. During his hospitalization, a diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma was obtained, for which he underwent surgery with excision and outpatient treatment.

Keywords : hyperparathyroidism; parathyroid adenoma; parathyroid hormone; hypercalcemia.
