Common medical conditions, such as head trauma, malignancy,and pregnancy may be associated with rarely seen metabolic emergencies that require prompt recognition and therapy. Although care of the primary disorder is the focus of initial management,identification of the associated endocrinopathy is important. These clinical syndromes, although uncommon, must be considered when evaluating patients, as prompt treatment may minimize the mortality and morbidity of these conditions.
