Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare disease. It usually presents as hyperparathyroidism, accompanied by clinical and biochemical data that suggest it.
It has a little active evolution, although tenacious, since the tumor has a rather low malignant potential. At their initial presentation, very few patients with parathyroid carcinoma have metastasized to either the regional lymph nodes (<5%) or distant sites (<2%).
A case of a 47-year-old woman with history of repeated kidney stones, with a previous diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism. In addition, she had a palpable cervical mass. Surgical treatment and pathological study were performed with the result of Parathyroid Carcinoma.
