parathyroidectomy, persistent primary hyperparathyroidism, parathyroid neoplasms, parathyroid gland adenoma, adult primary hyperparathyroidism
Hyperparathyroidism usually presents asymptomatically with elevated levels of calcium and parathyroid hormone; this biochemical imbalance establishes the diagnosis. In 80-85% of cases of primary hyperparathyroidism, singular parathyroid adenomas occur. In rare cases, this problem occurs due to multiple adenomas, multiglandular hyperplasia, or parathyroid carcinoma. Recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism (R-PHPT), as demonstrated in this case, is defined as hypercalcemia that arises after six months of normocalcemia following initial surgery for PHPT. The aim of this report is to describe the diagnosis and management of three parathyroid adenomas in a patient, two of which occurred after an initial partial parathyroidectomy.
