Abstract

Hyperparathyroidism is rare in infants and may be confused with other generalized congenital bone lesions. Characteristic features include diffuse hyperplasia of all four glands, extreme hypercalcemia, subperiosteal bone resorption and pathological fractures. Respiratory difficulty, poor feeding, hypotonia and constipation may be mild or severe. The authors report a case in which hyperparathyroidism was seen in a postmature baby girl 24 hr after birth.
