Background: Localization of ectopic parathyroid glands is one of the most sophisticated challenges in endocrine surgery and there is considerable controversy regarding the suitable approach to localize ectopic parathyroid glands and indications for using different modalities. The failure of the first operation leads to pain, scar, and financial burden of the following operation. Case: The patient was a 39-year-old woman hospitalized with hematuria as the main complaint and noticing the presentation of hypercalcemia in the initial tests underwent more thorough examination. Ultrasonography and 99mTc sestamibi scan helped us to localize the ectopic parathyroid gland in an anterior mediastinum and treat the patient in a one stage operation. Conclusion: Paying careful attention to the symptoms and signs, considering all differential diagnoses, and using appropriate diagnostic methods can be helpful in the diagnosis of rare syndromes.
Keywords: Parathyroid glands, Primary hyperparathyroidism, Technetium Tc 99m sestamibi
