Utility of the urine calcium-to-creatinine ratio to diagnose primary hyperparathyroidism in asymptomatic hypercalcaemic patients with vitamin D deficiency.


BACKGROUND Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) is the most common cause of hypercalcaemia, and often requires surgical treatment. Familial hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia (FHH) has similar biochemical features to PHP, but requires no treatment.
