“Brown Tumors” in Primary Hyperparathyroidism

  • Mario Campanacci


The parathyroid hormone (PTH) controls the homeostasis of calcium. It raises calcemia and lowers phosphatemia (the product of which tends to remain constant). The rise in calcemia occurs through mobilization of the mineral from the bone, increase of the renal resorption of calcium, increase of the intestinal absorption of calcium, and inhibition of the renal resorption of phosphates.
