Primary hyperparathyroidism is now diagnosed by hypercalcaemia, and overt bone disease is rare. This chapter also deals with parathyroid overactivity associated with MEN syndromes, with mutations of the CaSR, with parathyroid carcinoma, and with lithium. Parathyroid insufficiency and resistance have many causes. Resistance can be associated with extraskeletal mineralization. Mutations in the PTH/PTHrP receptor cause chondrodysplasia.
