Management of Hypercalcaemia

Abstract

Primary hyperparathyroidism and malignancy are the most common causes of hypercalcaemia. Parathyroid hormone measurement is fundamental in patient management. Symptomatic hypercalcaemia is relatively uncommon and will involve patient hospitalisation and subsequent treatment. Asymptomatic hypercalcaemia is increasingly recognised following introduction of multichannel biochemical analysis and, depending on aetiology and patient profile, is often managed in primary care.
