Abstract

Although the pathological relationship between parathyroid and
thyroid diseases is common, an association between parathyroid
adenoma and thyroid cancer is rare. Concomitant thyroid
cancer in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) has
been reported at varying frequencies.
WE present here a 23-year-old man who had papillary thyroid
carcinoma in the right thyroid lobe and a parathyroid adenoma
in the left thyroid lobe, which were confirmed surgically.
