Concomitant Graves’ & (?) ectopic parathyroid adenoma

Subbiah Kasi , Kumar Nitin , Sivappriyan Siva , Kumar Jesse

This case illustrates a decision paradox on investigations (to exclude secondary hypercalcaemia) and treatment options (in unresponsive thyrotoxicosis despite supra-normal doses of carbimazole). A 56-year-old lady, who was referred with hyperthyroid symptoms and evidence of biochemical thyrotoxicosis, was also found to have symptomatic hypercalcaemia (constipation & polyuria). Investigations were as follows: FT4 >100 pmol/l, TSH <0.02 mU/l, TRAb positive, Ca 3.0 mmol/l...
