Plasma 1,25(OH)2D in Idiopathic and Hyperparathyroid Stone-Formers
The differentiation of stone formation associated with primary hyperparathyroidism from that due to idiopathic stone disease is easily made when the degree of hyperparathyroidism is severe. In such patients the plasma calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentration are both persistently high. Furthermore at parathyroidectomy the histology is unequivocal since the weight of abnormal gland tissue is well above the weight of the normal total parathyroid tissue.
