Abstract

Until recently, very few studies have described the epidemiology of this rare disorder. Several large population-based studies have recently been published describing the prevalence and incidence of hypoparathyroidism in various countries. Some of these studies have described the epidemiology of both postsurgical and nonsurgical hypoparathyroidism. In addition, a number of studies have now been published describing the prevalence of complications of this disorder. This article summarizes the published medical literature regarding the prevalence and incidence of this disorder, and the risk of known complications of hypoparathyroidism.
