Abstract: A 71-year-old man was diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism. The patient was an ex-smoker and had no history of malignancy. Physical examination of the neck was unremarkable. Ultrasonography of the neck revealed no thyroid nodules and no visible parathyroid adenoma. A Sestamibi scan suggested an ectopic parathyroid adenoma in the right prevertebral space, between thoracic vertebral levels 1 and 2.
