Hungry bone syndrome (HBS) following successful parathyroid surgery is a well described phenomenon. However, few studies have clearly addressed this syndrome or looked at the outcome of perioperative management. We report a case of HBS following successful parathyroid surgery. The perioperative management is discussed and literature pertaining to this interesting case is reviewed.
