  8. 8. • investigations • Bone profile, PTH, urine ca. • Investigation of parents for abnormalities of calcium homeostasis • Imaging: • Renal ultrasound scan • Skeletal survey • Parathyroid gland ultrasound scan • Parathyroid gland SestaMIBI scan
  9. 9. • The management of hypercalcemia depends on the severity and cause of the elevation of serum Calcium.
  10. 10. • Patients with asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic hypercalcemia (calcium <12 mg/dL [3 mmol/L]) • no initial treatment may be necessary . • medical efforts to reach a diagnosis should be given the preference.
  11. 11. • When hypercalcemia is severe (total serum calcium >14mg/dL) (3.5 mmol/L) . • Or when there are symptoms .
  12. 12. • Discontinuation of calcium supplements • Discontinue medications that independently lead to hypercalcaemia, e.g. thiazides, vitamin D, calcitriol • Increase the weight bearing mobility of the patient
  13. 13. • low calcium formula in the infant . • Low calcium diet in the older child.
  14. 14. Treatment of underling cause
  15. 15. • Filtered calcium is principally reabsorbed in the proximal tubule and the ascending loop of Henle. • This process is mainly passive. • whereas active resorption of calcium occurs in the distal loop under the influence of PTH and to a lesser degree 1,25(OH)2D. • Proximal reabsorption is inhibited by volume expansion from intravenous saline infusion, which increases delivery of sodium, calcium and water to the loop of Henle. • administration of a loop diuretic such as furosemide then blocks transport at loop of henle
  16. 16. • Initial treatment of hypercalcemia involves hydration to improve urinary calcium output. • Isotonic sodium chloride solution is used. • MOA: to increase the glomerular filtration rate , increasing sodium excretion increases calcium excretion. • Volume expansion with isotonic saline at 1.5–2.5 maintenance.
  17. 17. • MOA: inhibit the reabsorption of calcium, especially in the presence of sodium, further promoting calciuresis.
  18. 18. • Furosemide : • 1–2 mg/kg/d, as divided doses every 4–6 hours. • 1mg/kg every six hours. • It works within hours and can lower serum calcium levels by 1-3 mg/dL within a day.
  19. 19. • If hypercalcemia does not respond to initial measures, agents that block bone- resorption may be useful as adjuvant therapy. • Insome cases, hypercalcemia is due osteoclastic bone resorption. • agents that inhibit or destroy osteoclasts will be effective treatments.
  20. 20. • MOA: • 1- increasing renal calcium excretion . • 2- by decreasing bone resorption via interference with osteoclast function • works within hours. • lowering the serum calcium concentration by a maximum of 1 to 2 mg/dL (0.3 to 0.5 mmol/L) • only for 2-3 days because of tachyphylaxis
  21. 21. • given at doses of 2–4 IU/kg SC/IM . • If a hypocalcemic response is noted, then the patient is calcitonin-sensitive and the calcitonin can be repeated every 6 to 12 hours. • it is useful in combination with hydration for the initial management of severe hypercalcemia • Can be administer along with a bisphosphonate
  22. 22. • is safe and relatively nontoxic • Adverse effects : nausea, abdominal pain, and flushing. • One benefit of calcitonin is that it has analgesic properties.
  23. 23. • nonhydrolyzable analogs of inorganic pyrophosphate . • MOA: inhibit calcium release by interfering with osteoclast-mediated bone resorption by inhibit ing osteoclast action and inducing osteoclast apoptosis • Helpful when hypercalcemia is primarily driven by the mobilization of calcium from bone as in cases: • 1-tumor induced hypercalcemia. • 2- immobilization. • 3-vitamin D intoxication • 4- primary hyperparathyroidism
  24. 24. • they are more potent than calcitonin and saline for patients with moderate or severe hypercalcemia . • Their maximum effect occurs in two to four days • The lowering of serum calcium levels can be of days to weeks duration • The nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates, including : • alendronate, ibandronate, pamidronate, risedronate, and zoledronic acid,
  25. 25. • the most potent inhibitor of bone resorption identified to date. • 0.025-0.05 mg/kg intravenously IV over 30-45 minutes. • is superior to pamidronate in reversing hypercalcemia related to malignancy
  26. 26. • Bisphosphonates are extremely effective in children with moderate to severe hypercalcaemia • 0.5–1 mg/kg/dose of pamidronate as an IV infusion over 4–6 h • they decrease serum calcium in 2-4 days with a nadir at 5-7 days. • may last for 2–4 weeks
  27. 27. Pamidronate • Side effects: • Fever, arthralgias, myalgia, fatigue, bone pain. • hypocalcemia, hypophosphatemia, and hypomagnesemia. • Uveitis. • impaired renal function, nephrotic syndrome • osteonecrosis of the jaw*.
  28. 28. • Neridronic acid is an IV/intramuscular (IM) bisphosphonate currently licensed in Europe; some pediatric data are available, including some in neonates.
  29. 29. Decrease Intestinal Calcium Absorption • Glucocorticoid • MOA: • prevent renal calcium reabsorption • inhibit the production and activity of 1,25(OH)2D, thus decreasing intestinal calcium absorption • Uses: • vitamin D intoxication. • in patients with chronic granulomatous diseases (eg, sarcoidosis) . • patients with lymphoma. • Idopathic infantile hypercalcemia.
  30. 30. • Prednisone at 1–2 mg/kg/d (or 20–40 mg/m2/d), given as divided doses every 4- 12 hours • Hydrocortisone 1mg/kg dose 12 hourly. • dexamethasone 0.4 mg/kg/day • onset of action is expected within 24–72 hours. • Steroids can be combined with calcitonin
  31. 31. • Cinacalcet • MOA: It changes the configuration of the transmembranal calcium-sensing receptor on chief cell of parathyroid gland in a manner that makes it more sensitive to serum calcium. • lowers PTH levels • Also results in concomitant decrease of serum calcium levels by affecting renal reabsorption.
  32. 32. • Uses: • NSHPT • chronic renal disease and secondary hyperparathyroidism.
  33. 33. • can be used in life-threatening cases . • particularly in patients with renal failure • haemodialysis is more effective than peritoneal dialysis at lowering calcium levels.
  34. 34. • is recommended for all children with primary hyperparathyroidism. • Including NSPHT. • Subtotal parathyroidectomy can be performed, or complete parathyroidectomy can be chosen with reimplantation of a small amount of tissue in the forearm. • Neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism requires total parathyroidectomy
