Abstract

In a group of 73 patients, affected by chronic renal insufficiency, whose skeleton was periodically checked, three cases of brown tumors were found. These cases demonstrated a variety of locations that were involved, especially the pelvis, ribs and mandible. During therapeutic treatment the brown tumors presented a different behavior; while some lesions tended toward complete sclerosis, others increased in size and in both instances new lesions appeared. Parathyroidectomy, carried out in two patients, determined a definitive sclerosis of these lesions. Brown tumors also correlate with high PTH levels and with lesions from osteitis fibrosa.
