Chloride:phosphate ratio with hypercalcemia secondary to thiazide administration.

Abstract

The chloride:phosphate ratio is of only limited value in aiding the clinician in the differential diagnosis of hypercalcemia. The use of thiazide diuretics may cause hypercalcemia with a chloride:phosphate ratio said to be consistent with a diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism. Parathormone assay remains the "gold standard" for definitive diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism.
