Reversible hypertension. Caused by the hypercalcemia of hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D toxicity, and calcium infusion.


Reversible hypertension occurred in a patient during episodes of hypercalcemia caused by hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D toxicity, and an infusion of calcium during an 11-year period of observation. It is suggested that normal renal function may be required for the hypertension of hyperparathyroidism to be reversible and that the hypertension may be directly related to the hypercalcemia in some patients. Early surgery is suggested for otherwise asymptomatic, mildly hypercalcemia hyperparathyroidism that is accompanied by hypertension.
