Fuller Albright and our current understanding of calcium and phosphorus regulation and primary hyperparathyroidism. The major contributions of Fuller Albright to our understanding of calcium and phosphorus regulation and primary hyperparathyroidism are highlighted.

Albright was the first investigator to initiate a systematic study of mineral metabolism. With resources limited to the measurement of serum calcium and phosphorus and the infusion of parathyroid extract, Albright used balance studies to establish a framework for our understanding of calcium and phosphorus regulation and primary hyperparathyroidism.

Albright was the first to show that the etiology of primary hyperparathyroidism could be from either an adenoma or hyperplasia of the parathyroid glands and stone disease was a separate manifestation of primary hyperparathyroidism.

Albright also showed that: He also suggested that a malignant tumor could be responsible primarik ectopic hormone production. Finally, our review integrates the observations of Albright with our current knowledge of calcium regulation and disorders.

Calcium, Hyperparathyroidism, Hypoparathyroidism, Parathyroid hormone, Phosphorus. Fuller Albright’s academic career began in the late s and ended in after brain surgery for Parkinson’s disease resulted in a non-functional state until his death in Although increasingly disabled by Parkinson’s disease from the mid s, Albright continued to make important contributions to our knowledge of calcium and phosphorus disorders 1.

His book, “Parathyroid Glands and Metabolic Bone Disease”, published inis a testimony to his many important observations 2. Our goal is to highlight some of the many contributions made by Albright on calcium and phosphorus regulation and primary hyperparathyroidism and to integrate the findings of Albright with more recent studies. Albright’s contributions to our understanding of renal phosphate transport have been discussed elsewhere 3.

Virtually all that Albright observed remains valid today, but as often happens, the explanations and their complexity continue to evolve. Our retrospective highlights Albright’s enduring legacy to the modern hpoparatiroidismo of calcium and phosphorus regulation and primary hyperparathyroidism.

The following topics are discussed: In the late s when Albright first started his studies of calcium and phosphorus regulation and primary hyperparathyroidism, his primary tools were: As a result of balance studies it became possible to determine how variations in dietary calcium and phosphate content and the administration of PTE affected: Graphic representation of balance data.

Effect of parathyroid extract and dietary calcium ans phosphate on primairo balance in normal subjects and in patients with hypoparathyroidism and hyperparathyroidism.

Hipoparatiroidismo by Diana Rebollar on Prezi

In an early study, Albright infused PTE into a patient with longstanding idiopathic hypoparathyroidism Figure prjmario 5. Albright concluded that the action of PTE was rapid, its first effect was phosphaturia, and the increase in serum calcium followed the hipopzratiroidismo in phosphorus excretion. Thus, Albright developed the hypothesis priimario PTH primarily modified phosphorus rather than calcium, a view that he still championed when his book was published almost 20 years later 2.

Albright argued that the PTH-induced increase in phosphorus excretion and the resulting decrease in serum phosphorus promoted bone dissolution releasing calcium. While such a conclusion might sound somewhat fanciful today, it should be remembered that Albright had participated in studies in which ammonium chloride-induced acidosis increased the serum calcium concentration and urinary calcium excretion without increasing intestinal calcium absorption suggesting that acidosis induced bone dissolution 67.

Today it is recognized that phosphate depletion increases calcium release from bone resulting in hypercalciuria and even hypercalcemia despite a marked reduction in PTH primari suggesting prijario bone dissolution is an important feature 89. Finally, Albright was correct in his hypothesis that phosphate hipoparatiroiismo a major modifier of the calcemic response of bone to PTH.

Many subsequent studies have shown that phosphate loading and restriction change the calcemic response to PTH Effect of parathyroid extract on urinary calcium and phosphorus excretion in a patient with idiopathic hypoparathyroidism.

As already mentioned, Albright had observed during a PTE-induced increase in serum calcium in a hypoparathyroid patient that the serum calcium threshold at which urinary calcium excretion increased from negligible values was approximately 8.

However, that threshold value did not account for the now known effect of PTH on urinary calcium excretion. Inone of the authors CRK first showed primaeio PTE administration directly increased renal calcium reabsorption InOgata and associates showed that besides PTH, the active form of vitamin D, calcitriol, directly increased the threshold for renal calcium excretion and also enhanced the responsiveness of the tubule to PTH More recently, Bindels and colleagues have shown that the stimulatory effect of both calcitriol and PTH on renal calcium reabsorption results from the activation of an epithelial calcium channel TRPV5 in the distal hipoparariroidismo tubule Vitamin D treatment and calcium infusion as phosphaturic agents.


In and inAlbright used the newly available analog of vitamin D, dihydrotachysterol, for the treatment of hypocalcemia in patients with hypoparathyroidism 17 and also in the newly described disorder of pseudohypoparathyroidism in which there was a failure to respond to administered PTE Albright observed that the correction of hypocalcemia increased urine phosphate excretion.

This observation had been made earlier by associates of Albright 19 and by Howland and Kramer InEisenberg demonstrated in hypoparathyroid patients that the phosphaturia was independent of vitamin D by showing that a prolonged intravenous infusion of calcium sufficient to normalize the serum calcium concentration at 48 hours was hipoparatiroivismo and also lowered the serum phosphorus concentration figure 3A, figure3B Evidence has accumulated during the hipoparatirojdismo several years that the recently discovered bone-derived phosphaturic hormone, fibroblast growth factor 23 FGF23 might be involved.

High dietary calcium has been shown to stimulate FGF23 22 and the correlation between the serum calcium concentration and Prumario seen in primary hyperparathyroidism 25 even remained significant after parathyroidectomy However, a study has yet to be performed identifying the specific mechanism for the observation made more than 70 years ago by Albright and others.

Primary hyperparathyroidism, intestinal calcium absorption, and renal failure. In patients with primary hyperparathyroidism, Albright showed that changes in dietary calcium and phosphate affected calcium balance.

The first patient studied was Captain Martell 26who was to have seven parathyroid operations before an ectopic parathyroid gland was removed from the anterior mediastinum From the balance studies in Captain Martell, who had serum hipoparatirkidismo values between Thus, Albright concluded that in primary hyperparathyroidism: Albright also evaluated the effect of dietary phosphate on calcium balance in hyperparathyroidism.

He showed that a high phosphate diet improved calcium balance in hyperparathyroid patients on both low 0. When high dietary phosphate was given to patients with primary hyperparathyroidism, there was: While a high phosphate diet seemed to have certain beneficial effects such as lowering the serum calcium concentration and decreasing urinary calcium excretion, Albright recognized that there were two potential dangers jipoparatiroidismo with increased phosphate ingestion in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism: Today, the recognition that hyperphosphatemia in CKD patients and perhaps even high normal serum phosphorus values in the general population are associated with increased vascular disease and mortality probably from increased vascular calcification 29,30 could be considered an extension of the pioneering studies of Albright.

ByAlbright came to understand that renal failure had a specific effect on calcium and phosphorus regulation When a 13 year old girl with moderate renal failure was referred for hypercalcemia The balance studies showed that on a low calcium diet 0. Also, fecal calcium excretion was greater than in controls and much greater than in hyperparathyroid patients without renal failure. Because of the results in this young girl with renal failure, Albright reviewed the results of the series of balance studies which had been performed on Captain Hipopafatiroidismo before and after he developed renal failure.

Thus, Albright was the first to recognize that the development of renal failure in primary hyperparathyroidism dramatically decreased both intestinal absorption and the renal excretion of calcium. Today, it is known that PTH stimulates renal production of the active form of vitamin D, calcitriol, which in turn enhances intestinal absorption of calcium. With loss of renal function, calcitriol production is decreased despite high PTH values, a result which may in part be due to increased FGF23 values.

Consequently, both intestinal calcium absorption and renal calcium excretion are reduced in renal failure.

The latter results from both a decrease pri,ario the glomerular filtration of calcium and increased tubular calcium reabsorption from high PTH values. A comparison of the calcium and phosphorus metabolism of a patient with hyperparathyroidism before and after the development of renal impairment The results for normal individuals are included for comparison In several patients in his original series of 17 patients published in 32Albright made the diagnosis of hipoparatigoidismo only because he had the insight to measure serum calcium and phosphorus values in all patients who presented with kidney stones.


In the first 14 patients to undergo parathyroid surgery, parathyroid adenomas were found. Two of these patients had ectopic parathyroid adenomas located in the anterior mediastinum. Cases 15 to 17 had hyperplasia of all the parathyroid glands. Because hyperplasia had not been previously recognized as an entity, Case 15 required three parathyroid operations to remove a sufficient amount of the hyperplastic glands before the hypercalcemia resolved.

Between the second and third operations, estrogen treatment and irradiation of the pituitary and parathyroid glands were tried without success In this series of 17 patients, the dimensions, but not the weights of the removed parathyroid glands were provided The mean amount of parathyroid tissue removed per patient was approximately 83 times greater than the combined size of four normal human parathyroid glands, which subsequently were shown to have a combined weight of approximately mg Based on these results, the average estimated weight of removed parathyroid tissue for each patient was approximately 11 hipoparatiroidiismo.


In severe cases of primary hyperparathyroidism with marked hypercalcemia, cachexia and debilitating fractures hipoparatiroidlsmo sometimes seen and parathyroidectomy was life saving figure 4. The different magnitude of primary hyperparathyroidism in patients presenting in the s and today is shown by the very high preoperative serum calcium values in Albright’s patients figure 5. Finally, Albright was the first to describe the “hungry bone syndrome” in which severe hypocalcemia developed values shortly after parathyroidectomy figure 6.

He also showed that the decrease in serum calcium hipopartiroidismo with the pre-operative serum alkaline phosphatase value. In actuality, the subsequent recognition of the “hungry bone syndrome” in dialysis patients after parathyroidectomy is an extension of the results hipopparatiroidismo primary hyperparathyroidism by Albright.

The same patient before and after parathyroidectomy from original series of Albright. Average preoperative serum calcium values of the first 35 patients with primary hyperparathyroidism from the Massachusetts General Hospital series. Fall in serum calcium values after parathyroidectomy in 35 cases of primary hyperparathyroidism first demonstration of hungry bone syndrome.

InAlbright also recognized that patients with primary hyperparathyroidism presented with hipoparatiroidimso bone disease or stone disease, but rarely both together In patients with bone disease, skeletal symptoms associated with bone loss, bone cysts, brown tumors, and fractures predominated.

In patients with stone disease, presenting symptoms were those associated with nephrolithiasis and skeletal problems were generally absent. Albright questioned why there should be two separate presentations for the same disease. He hypothesized that the extent of bone disease was proportional to the duration of disease times the daily loss of calcium primariio Thus, according to Albright a short duration of disease would lessen the risk of bone disease.

Moreover, a high calcium intake would make bone disease less likely hipoparariroidismo as Albright had previously observed in studies of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism, a high calcium diet resulted in a positive calcium balance InKeating reported 24 patients with hipoparatioridismo hyperparathyroidism in whom the magnitude of hypercalcemia, hypophosphatemia and serum alkaline phosphatase elevation was hopoparatiroidismo in patients with bone disease than with stone disease In contradiction to the hypothesis advanced by Albright, the patients with bone disease had a shorter duration of symptoms before presentation.

InDent also reported that patients with bone disease had a pdimario duration of symptoms Subsequently, Dent reported that there was no difference in dietary intake of calcium between patients with bone or stone disease InLloyd reviewed consecutive cases of primary hyperparathyroidism accumulated by Dent in London from to The remaining six patients had neither overt bone disease nor primadio stones.

As shown in table 2the adenoma weight was greater, the growth rate of the parathyroid tissue more rapid, and the duration of hipoparatoroidismo was shorter in patients with bone disease.

These results contradicted Albright’s hypothesis that patients with bone disease have a longer duration of disease. Comparison of two types of primary hyperparathyroidism based on a series analyzed by Lloyd From Lloyd One explanation for the shorter duration of disease together with more severe hypercalcemia and larger adenomas in patients with bone disease is simply a more rapid growth rate of the parathyroid adenomas in patients with bone disease.
