Secondary hyperparathyroidism is a frequently encountered problem in the management of patients with chronic kidney disease. Its pathophysiology is mainly due to hyperphosphatemia and vitamin D deficiency and resistance. This situation has a high impact on the mortality and morbidity of dialysis patients. Prompt diagnosis of secondary hyperparathyroidism is crucial in the management of patients with chronic kidney disease. The treatment remains a challenge for patients and their clinicians. It would comprise a combination of dietary phosphorus restriction, phosphate binders, calcimimetics and vitamin D analogues.
