Acute pancreatitis and parathyroid carcinoma: a case report and literature review

CONCLUSIONS: Acute pancreatitis induced by primary hyperparathyroidism due to parathyroid carcinoma is an extremely rare condition. However, when hypercalcemia is found, serum PTH levels should always be determined in order to rule out PHPT and hypercalcemia-induced acute pancreatitis should be suspected in presence of hypercalcemia and abdominal symptoms.PMID:34661256 | DOI:10.26355/eurrev_202110_26874
