Symptomatic Ossified Ligamentum Flavum Secondary to Hyperparathyroidism

 Symptomatic Ossified Ligamentum Flavum Secondary to Hyperparathyroidism

It has never before been reported as a consequence of hyperparathyroidism. We report a case of OLF in an African American patient with underlying renal disease and secondary hyperparathyroidism.
