Epidemiology of Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

30 Scopus citations


Primary hyperparathyroidism is the third most common endocrine disorder. The epidemiology of this disorder is increasingly well understood, but significant limitations still exist in our understanding of the mortality, hospitalizations, incidence, prevalence, and costs associated with this condition. These limitations are due to the small number of population-based epidemiologic studies that have evaluated this condition. Further studies will be required to fully characterize the epidemiology of primary hyperparathyroidism.
