Abstract

Elevated parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations in plasma can be found during pregnancy and are due to a negative calcium balance; however, clinically manifest hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is rare and may remain undiscovered during pregnancy. Only after late hypocalcemic tetany in the newborn the diagnosis becomes apparent.
