Surgical management of hyperparathyroid jaw tumour syndrome: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. C Swaminathan
ABSTRACT:Parathyroid hormone plays an important role in calcium regulation, it causes resorption in bones, increased calcium absorption from Gastrointestinal tract, calcium tubular reabsorption in kidneys and aids in synthesis of 1,25 dihydroxy Vitamin D. The extra cellular calcium level serves as a negative feedback mechanism to control the parathyroid hormone level. Hyperparathyroidism is an endocrine disorder in which there is increased secretion of parathyroid harmone. It occurs commonly in female and clinically manifests as poor muscle tone, excitability, back pain and gastric irritation. In long bones hyperparathyroidism causes osteolytic lesion Osteitis Fibrosa Cystica otherwise called as brown’s tumour. Browns tumour usually affects the femur, mandible and maxilla. Hyperparathyroidism usually manifests as Osteitis Fibrosa Cystica (browns tumour) in jaws but can also associated with hereditary hyperparathyroidism syndromes like hyperparathyroid jaw tumour syndrome. Here we report a case of Hyperparathyroid jaw tumour syndrome and its management with relevant review of literature.
