Hyperparathyroidism with acute pancreatitis in elderly patient treated by radiofrequency ablation: A case report.

Acute pancreatitis as an initial manifestation of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) has been rarely reported. We report a case of acute pancreatitis from a hyperfunctioning parathyroid tumor in an 87-year-old woman with drowsy state. Laboratory tests showed high lipase, calcium, and intact parathyroid hormone level, and abdominal computed tomography scan revealed acute pancreatitis. Neck ultrasound and scintigraphy gave rise to the diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism due to a left parathyroid tumor. The patient underwent radiofrequency ablation of the parathyroid tumor. After the procedure, symptoms subsided and patient was discharged from the hospital 2 weeks later. Six months of treatment, the PTH and calcium serum significantly reduced, her clinical presentation was stable, and there were no signs or symptoms of recurrence pancreatitis.
