ROCHA A, LUIS et al. Primary hyperparathyroidism and parathyroid cancer: Report of one case. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2010, vol.62, n.5, pp.512-515. ISSN 0718-4026.

We report a 51 years old female operated for a primary hyperparathyroidism that relapsed in two occasions. After the first and second operation, the pathological study of the excised glands disclosed an adenoma. After the second relapse, a parathyroid gland in the right lateral and upper cervical region, located with technetium (Tc)-99m Sestamibi scintigraphy, was excised. The pathological study of the surgical piece disclosed a parathyroid carcinoma without local lymph node involvement. A postoperative 18F-fluorodexyglucose positron emission tomography did not show tumor dissemination.

Keywords : Hyperparathyroidism; parathyroid cancer; parathyroid adenoma.
