Parathyroid crisis (storm), also known as parathyroid storm, is an extremely rare and life-threatening endocrine emergency caused by excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone (PTH). It is characterized by sudden and severe hypercalcemia, which can lead to multi-organ dysfunction and failure. This review paper aims to provide an in-depth understanding of parathyroid crisis, including its pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management options.
