First described in the nineteenth century, OFC is currently detected through a combination of blood testing , X-rays , and tissue sampling. Before , around half of those diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism in the United States saw it progress to OFC, but with early identification techniques and improved treatment methods, instances of OFC in developed countries are increasingly rare.

Where treatment is required, it normally involves addressing the underlying hyperparathyroidism before commencing long-term treatment for OFC—depending on its cause and severity, this can range from hydration and exercise to surgical intervention. Osteitis fibrosa cystica is defined as the classic skeletal manifestation of advanced hyperparathyroidism. The major symptoms of OFC are bone pain or tenderness, bone fractures , and skeletal deformities such as bowing of the bones. The underlying hyperparathyroidism may cause kidney stones , nausea , constipation , fatigue and weakness.

X-rays may indicate thin bones, fractures, bowing, and cysts. Fractures are most commonly localized in the arms, legs, or spine. The addition of weight loss, appetite loss , vomiting, polyuria , and polydipsia to the aforementioned symptoms may indicate that OFC is the result of parathyroid carcinoma. Symptoms are also often more severe. Osteitis fibrosa cystica is the result of unchecked hyperparathyroidism, or the overactivity of the parathyroid glands , which results in an overproduction of parathyroid hormone PTH.

PTH causes the release of calcium from the bones into the blood, and the reabsorption of calcium in the kidney. Thus, excess PTH in hyperparathyroidism causes elevated blood calcium levels, or hypercalcemia.

The vast majority of cases of hyperparathyroidism are the result of the random formation of benign, but metabolically active, parathyroid adenoma swellings. Approximately 1 in 10 documented cases of hyperparathyroidism are a result of hereditary factors. Disorders such as familial hyperparathyroidism, multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 MEN Type 1 and hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor syndrome can, if left unchecked, result in OFC.

Major mutations which can lead to hyperparathyroidism generally involve the parathyroid hormone receptor, G proteins , or adenylate cyclase. Parathyroid carcinoma cancer of the parathyroid gland is the rarest cause of OFC, accounting for about 0. OFC onset by parathyroid carcinoma is difficult to diagnose. OFC is a common presentation of renal osteodystrophy , which is a term used to refer to the skeletal complications of end stage renal disease ESRD.

When calcitriol levels decrease, parathyroid hormone levels increase, halting the storage of calcium, and instead triggering its removal from the bones. The effects of OFC on bone are largely dependent on the duration of the disease and the level of parathyroid hormone PTH produced. It activates the parathyroid-hormone related protein receptor located on osteoblasts and osteocytes , both of which are responsible for the building and calcification of bone.

Abnormalities affecting the parathyroid glands cause a surplus of PTH, which, in turn, increases the activity and frequency of osteoblasts and osteocytes. Generally, the first bones to be affected are the fingers, facial bones, ribs, and pelvis. OFC may be diagnosed using a variety of techniques.

Muscles in patients afflicted with OFC can either appear unaffected or "bulked up. Blood tests on patients with OFC generally show high levels of calcium normal levels are considered to range between 8. X-rays may also be used to diagnose the disease. Usually, these X-rays will show extremely thin bones, which are often bowed or fractured. However, such symptoms are also associated with other bone diseases, such as osteopenia or osteoporosis.

Cysts may be lined by osteoclasts and sometimes blood pigments, which lend to the notion of "brown tumors. Fine needle aspiration FNA can be used to biopsy bone lesions , once found on an X-ray or other scan.

Such tests can be vital in diagnosis and can also prevent unnecessary treatment and invasive surgery. The brown tumors commonly associated with OFC display many of the same characteristics of osteoclasts. Nucleoli also tend to be smaller than average. Medical management of OFC consists of Vitamin D treatment, generally alfacalcidol or calcitriol , delivered intravenously.

Studies have shown that in cases of OFC caused by either end-stage renal disease or primary hyperparathyoidism, this method is successful not only in treating underlying hyperparathyoidism, but also in causing the regression of brown tumors and other symptoms of OFC.

In especially severe cases of OFC, parathyroidectomy, or the full removal of the parathyroid glands, is the chosen route of treatment. Parathyroidectomy has been shown to result in the reversal of bone resorption and the complete regression of brown tumors.

Bone transplants have proven successful in filling the lesions caused by OFC. A report showed that in 8 out of 11 instances where cavities caused by OFC were filled with transplanted bone, the lesion healed and the transplanted bone blended rapidly and seamlessly with the original bone.

Almost all who undergo parathyroidectomy experience increased bone density and repair of the skeleton within weeks. Additionally, patients with OFC who have undergone parathyroidectomy begin to show regression of brown tumors within six months.

This results from a combination of suppressed parathyroid glands due to prolonged hypercalcaemia , as well as the need for calcium and phosphate in the mineralization of new bone. Thirty percent of patients with OFC-like tumors caused by metastatic parathyroid carcinoma who undergo surgery see a local recurrence of symptoms.

The post-surgical survival rate hovers around seven years, while patients who do not undergo surgery have a survival rate of around five years. Osteitis fibrosa cystica has long been a rare disease.

The hospitalization rate for hyperparathyroidism in the United States in was 8. Rates of OFC increase alongside cases of unchecked primary hyperparathyroidism.

In developing countries, such as India, rates of disease as well as case reports often mirror those published in past decades in the developed world. This mutation also tends to affect younger individuals. The condition was first described by Gerhard Engel in and Friedrich Daniel von Recklinghausen in , though William Hunter , who died in , is credited with finding the first example of the disease.

The discovery and subsequent description of the parathyroid glands is credited to Ivar Sandstrom, though his publication, On a New Gland in Man and Several Mammals-Glandulae Parathyroideae , received little attention. Gustaf Retzius and Eugene Gley compounded his research, the latter credited with the discovery of the function of the parathyroid glands. The patient's symptoms disappeared, only to return in approximately six years as a result of renal stones that were diagnosed only after the patient had died.
