Hypercalcaemia and parathyroid disease

11th June 2020


The parathyroid glands are essential for life with their function of maintaining calcium homoeostasis. They were discovered in humans by a medical student in 1880.

In this talk we aim to cover the physiology, anatomy and pathology of the parathyroid glands. We will conclude with a case presentation and then give you the opportunity to ask questions that may have arisen.
