Abstract

Parathyroid carcinoma, although a rare cause of primary hyperparathyroidism, carries a significant morbidity and mortality from severe symptomatic hypercalcaemia and related complications. We report a case where the diagnosis was not considered from the outset and review the current clinical and histopathological markers available to assist in the diagnosis of parathyroid carcinoma.
