    Short stature is a major problem in paediatric ERF patients with 29% of transplant patients and 41% of dialysis patients below the second percentile for height. Only 6.5% of transplant patients and 15.5% of dialysis patients are receiving rhGH. There is no significant difference in the height...

    Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a frequent complication of chronic renal failure (CRF) and a major factor in the pathogenesis of renal osteodystrophy. A high serum phosphate, decreased levels of serum 1,25(OH)[sub 2] D[sub 3] and the subsequently low serum calcium are the major metabolic...

    Parathyroid hyperplasia in uremic rats precedes down-regulation of the calcium receptor. Background. Recent evidence points to a relationship between the down-regulation of the calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) and parathyroid cell hyperplasia that is associated with chronic renal failure. It is...

    Brown tumor or parathyroid osteopathy is a kind of bony lesion caused by hyperparathyroidism. It appears as an expansive osteolytic lesion mostly in mandible, ribs, pelvis and femur, but rarely in the upper jaw. Bone resorption is the result of osteoclastic activity due to an increased activity...
