Abstract

This is the first case report on the effects of teriparatide on the course of healing of an intertrochanteric hip fracture with unusually excessive callus formation even after discontinuation of treatment in an elderly woman. This case highlights the long-term effects of parathyroid hormone, even after administration of short-term, intermittent dosages for healing of osteoporotic fracture.
