Increased Prevalence Of Nephrolithiasis And Hyperoxaluria In Paget Disease Of Bone
Nephrolithiasis (NL) and primary hyperparathyroidism (HPTH) are metabolic complications of Paget disease of bone (PDB), but recent data regarding their prevalence in PDB patients are lacking.
Study 1: To compare the prevalence of primary HPTH and NL in 708 patients with PDB and in 1803 controls. Study 2: To evaluate the prevalence of NL-metabolic risk factors in 97 patients with PDB and NL, 219 PDB patients without NL, 364 NL patients without PDB, and 219 controls, all of them without HPTH.
Cross-sectional multicentric study.
Italian referral centers for metabolic bone disorders.
Patients with PDB from the Associazione Italiana malati di osteodistrofia di Paget registry. Participants in the Olivetti Heart and the Siena Osteoporosis studies.
HPTH; NL; NL-metabolic risk factors.
Patients with PDB showed higher prevalence of primary HPTH and NL compared with controls (P < 0.01). The NL recurrence occurs more frequently in patients with polyostotic PDB. About one-half of patients with PDB but without NL showed 1 or more NL-related metabolic risk factors. The hyperoxaluria (HyperOx) prevalence was higher in patients with PDB and NL compared with patients with NL but without PDB and in patients with PDB without NL compared with controls (P = 0.01). Patients with PDB and HyperOx showed a longer lapse of time from the last aminobisphosphonate treatment.
NL and HPTH are frequent metabolic complication of PDB. The NL occurrence should be evaluated in patients with PDB, particularly in those with polyostotic disease and/or after aminobisphosphonate treatment to apply an adequate prevention strategy.
