Parathyroid carcinoma (PC) is a rare neoplasm with a high rate of recurrence and an indolent course. It is frequently functional, causing nearly 1% of the cases of primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT), and in some cases, it may be complicated by brown tumors, mimicking bone metastases. Synchronous parathyroid and papillary thyroid carcinomas are rare.

Abstract

Parathyroid carcinoma (PC) is a rare neoplasm with a high rate of recurrence and an indolent course. It is frequently functional, causing nearly 1% of the cases of primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT), and in some cases, it may be complicated by brown tumors, mimicking bone metastases. Synchronous parathyroid and papillary thyroid carcinomas are rare.
