Published on: 2014-07-21

Abstract

Primary hyperparathyroidism is a rare but occasionally life-threatening complication during pregnancy. We reported a 23-year-old gravida who suffered from primary hyperparathyroidism and she died due to severe aspiration pneumonia. Till now, there was no fatal case report about pregnancy with PHT in the English medical literature.
