Skeletal Manifestations of Hypoparathyroidism.

A new interesting article has been published in Endocrinol Metab Clin North Am. 2018 Dec;47(4):825-837. doi: 10.1016/j.ecl.2018.07.008. Review and titled:

Skeletal Manifestations of Hypoparathyroidism.

Authors of this article are:

Rubin MR.

A summary of the article is shown below:

Chronic parathyroid hormone (PTH) deficiency has a marked effect on the skeleton, leading to characteristic decreases in bone remodeling and increases in bone mass. Numerous lines of evidence using biochemical, imaging, and histomorphometric methodologies have demonstrated that the skeleton is altered when PTH is absent and that these abnormalities might be reversed with PTH treatment. More evidence is needed to determine whether fracture risk is altered in hypoparathyroidism.
