Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 1996 Feb;25(1):54-6. doi: 10.1016/s0901-5027(96)80012-9.

Abstract

A case of facial deformity and malocclusion due to secondary hyperparathyroidism is presented. Treatment consisted of parathyroidectomy, followed by recontouring of the maxilla and mandible with additional dental treatment. A 3-D reconstruction of the computed tomography (CT) scan was helpful in evaluating the facial deformities and in treatment planning.
