The clinical findings of hyperparathyroidism may be due to hypercalcaemia or involvement of the renal system as well as skeletal and haemopoietic system. Most patient with Primary hyperparathyroidism show few evidence of kidney diseases such as nephrocalcinosis, renal tubular acidosis and mild renal failure. But usually in these cases hypercalcaemia is evident. This case being presented is of interest due to normocalcaemia with renal involvement with primary hyperparathyroidism.
