Abstract

BACKGROUND: Hyperparathyroidism is caused by parathyroid adenoma, hyperplasia or carcinoma. Parathyroid ade-nomas are the most common cause of parathyroid disease (85-88%) while atypical parathyroid adenomas and carcinomas are the least frequently seen parathyroid neoplasms which cause diagnostic difficulty. This series aims to identifiy lesions of parathyroidectomy specimens in our center and draw attention to borderline cases in between parathyroid adenoma and carcinoma.
