Dr. Priyanka Anand* and Dr. Poonam Sahni

ABSTRACT

Parathyroid lipoadenoma also known as parathyroid lipohyperplasia or parathyroid hamartoma, is a rare variant of parathyroid adenoma which shows a mixture of chief cells with abundant mature fat cells comprising 20-90% of the tumor. We report a case of a 40 year old female who presented with clinical manifestations of primary hyperparathyroidism since 2 months. Parathyroid lipoadenoma is an unusual cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. Patient had elevated serum calcium and parathyroid hormone levels. Computerized tomography findings revealed a right inferior parathyroid hyperenhancing lesion. Patient underwent surgical excision, the specimen was sent for histopathological examination and it was diagnosed as a parathyroid lipoadenoma which was confirmed subsequently on immunohistochemistry.

Keywords: Lipoadenoma, parathyroid, hyperparathyroidism, histopathology.
