An elephant is a strong animal, but when it comes to ants, its trunk proves to be the Achilles heel. Small things can sometimes be so very effective and important. We somehow find this to be analogous to parathyroid glands in our body. These small structures of a few grams control the body in a huge way and their importance becomes evident when they develop some pathology. An impaired calcium metabolism can lead to pathological fractures, renal stones, pancreatitis, gastric reflux, psychiatric symptoms and various other problems.
Surgery for parathyroid adenomas has somehow remained out of gambit of ENT surgeons. This is interesting, specially because for quite a few years now majority of thyroid surgeries are being done in ENT. In last few years, ENT department in many centres across the world are doing more and more of parathyroid surgeries.
