Abstract Parathyroid disorders are not common among pregnant women, but harbor a significant morbidity and mortality potential if they remain unrecognized and untreated. The symptoms caused by abnormally low or high blood free calcium level are mostly non-specific in the initial stages, thus when recognized might pose a real danger. Here we will survey the alterations in calcium metabolism induced by pregnancy, and describe the clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of parathyroid and other calcium metabolism disorders during pregnancy. The current literature on the impact of calcium and vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy will also be reviewed.
