Abstract

Asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism has become the most common presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism in Europe and North America, and an increasingly common presentation in other parts of the world. As many as 25% of asymptomatic patients may develop indications for parathyroidectomy when followed long-Term for up to 15 years. Patients who remain asymptomatic should be monitored for the development of complications that justify surgery. Patients who become symptomatic should be referred for surgery. Surgery may improve quality of life even in patients who remain asymptomatic.
