Disorders of the parathyroid gland

Abstract

The parathyroid glands play a crucial role in maintaining nor mal calcium homeostasis, primarily through their regulated secretion of parathyroid hormone. A variety of congenital and acquired causes of diminished parathyroid function exist, including developmental abnormalities and defective parathyroid hormone synthesis or release, and the genetic basis for many of these is known. Primary disorders of parathyroid hyperfunction, mostly owing to parathyroid gland tumors, can be familial or sporadic. Molecular pathogenetic insights into these disorders are substantial, and have been exploited for clinical management.
