A Primary Hyperparathyroidism Presenting with Pancreatic Pseudocyst: An Unusual Presentation
Keywords:Parathyroid adenoma, pancreatitis, rare, Primary hyperparathyroidism
The association between hyperparathyroidism and pancreatitis has been under debate for many years. The incidence of hyperparathyroidism related pancreatitis ranges between 1.5-7%. Here, we report a case of a parathyroid adenoma related pancreatitis in a 54-year-old lady, who had a month-long history of epigastric pain. The pancreatic pseudocyst rooted from hypercalcemia occurring secondary to excess PTH secretion by pituitary adenoma. The patient underwent surgery for both the adenoma and pseudocyst followed by normalization of serum calcium and PTH levels and resolution of the symptoms.
