FERNANDEZ-SAN MILLAN, D. et al. Are the current surgical criteria for asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism valid?. Rev Osteoporos Metab Miner [online]. 2015, vol.7, n.1, pp.15-19. ISSN 2173-2345.

HPTP is a very frequent pathology which often develops asymptomatically. Surgical intervention being the only curative treatment for this disease there are some criteria for the indication of surgery, but these do not always fit the reality of the patient since they are based on clinical complications (osteoporosis, renal insufficiency, urolithiasis, fragility fractures). We present the clinical case of a patient who did not meet any of the requirements for having surgical intervention according to the position documents, and who was operated on after the existence was shown of a deterioration of the trabecular bone structure, determined by the TBS (trabecular bone score) technique, and located in the adenoma using gammagraphy. The possible use of these techniques, not seen in the position documents, to complement the decision regarding surgery, is discussed.

Palavras-chave : primary hyperparathyroidism; diagnosis; consensus; surgery; densitometry; TBS.
