A Case of a Pregnant Patient on Hemodialysis who Showed Remarkable Improvement of Severe Hyperparathyroidism by Strict Serum Phosphorus Control.

A Case of a Pregnant Patient on Hemodialysis who Showed Remarkable Improvement of Severe Hyperparathyroidism by Strict Serum Phosphorus Control. Intern Med. 2019 Nov 18;: Authors: Ito J, Fujii H, Kono K, Goto S, Nishi S Abstract We encountered a pregnant hemodialysis patient with severe hyperparathyroidism (HPT). Although her disease was considered to be refractory to medical treatment, the serum intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) level remarkably improved without manifestation of hypercalcemia through only strict serum phosphorus control, mainly via intensification of dialysis. The very strong correlation between the serum phosphorus level and serum intact PTH level suggested the possibility of secondary HPT. She ultimately gave birth to a healthy baby. The clinical course of the patient's HPT and the growth of the child have been good for more than six years. PMID: 31735793 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Pregnancy is rare in women on hemodialysis. Recommendations for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) and preservation of bone health in pregnant dialysis patients are lacking.

We report the case of a 4-month pregnant woman with severe primary hyperparathyroidism, in whom US failed to localize the abnormal parathyroid gland. 99mTc-sestamibi scintigraphy was performed in preference to 18-fluorocholine (FCH)-PET/CT on the basis of a multidisciplinary decision. As 99mTc-MIBI demonstrated an hyperfunctioning right inferior parathyroid, 123I was not administered. A large right paravertebral parathyroid adenoma was successfully removed, as confirmed by decreased postoperative serum parathyroid hormone and calcium levels. The eutrophic newborn infant was delivered at term, with normal serum calcium and ...
