The postoperative course of six patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and obvious radiological evidence of bone disease pretreated with 1-alpha-hydroxy vitamin D3 (1 alpha HCC) was indistinguishable from that of six patients with a similar clinical and radiological picture who were not pretreated. 1alphaHCC may increase the hypercalcaemia in some cases and cannot be recommended for the routine preparation of such patients for surgery.
