The functional status of the parathyroid in adult spasmophilia patients estimated by plasma parathormone assay.

In 25 cases of spasmophilia the parathyroid function was assessed by complete exploration of the P-Ca metabolism and radioimmunoassay (RIA) of parathormone ( PTH). Concomitantly the bone mineralization status was assessed by induced hypercalciuria tests and administration of 30 mg vitamin D2. RIA of PTH revealed increased values in 50% of the cases. The values fall within the range of secondary hyperparathyroidism, but this percentage varies with the values of the parathyroid function obtained by P-Ca metabolism explorations. The increased PTH values do no correlate with the level of plasma total calcium, ionic calcium, and magnesemia. Nor do they correlate with the bone mineralization disorders or the duration of the disease and the age of the patients.[1]
