Secondary hyperparathyroidism is often associated with end stage renal disease; even after renal transplantation, hyperparathyroidism may persist, and is responsible for hypercalcemia, hypophosphatemia and elevated parathyroid hormone (iPTH) levels. Parathyroid hyperplasia is frequently associated with persistent hyperparathyroidism and may require a surgical treatment. Here, we report hyperparathyroidism along with parathyroid hyperplasia in a 7-year-old child, which persisted after renal transplant. Calcitonin and pamidronate failed to decrease serum calcium levels; clodronate was also inefficient. Cinacalcet therapy normalized serum calcium and phosphorus levels, and decreased iPTH levels in 3 months; a severe parathyroid hyperplasia was also corrected under calcimimetic therapy...
