Abstract

A case of oxyphil cell adenoma of parathyroid is presented. A 82-year-old woman complained of back pain. Left hydronephrosis, elevated serum calcium-parathyroid hormone and a nodule in the right neck suggested functioning parathyroid adenoma. Resected adenoma (15 mm x 10 mm x 5 mm) was exclusively composed of oxyphil cell. Production of parathyroid hormone by oxyphil cells was confirmed by immunohistochemistry. This case was found to be the smallest parathyroid oxyphil cell adenoma hitherto reported that caused urolithiasis.
