Oruk G Gonca , Haciyanli Mehmet , Koruyucu Melike Bedel , Ruksen Ebru , Gur Ozlem , Tavusbay Cengiz , Yilmaz Husnu , Pamuk Baris

Lesions causing primary hyperparathyroidism (PHP) can be summarised as solitary adenoma (80–85%), multiglandular hyperplasia (15%), parathyroid carcinoma (1%). While double adenomas are identified in 2–15% of the patients which are operated for PHP, triple adenomas are very rare. The case is presented because in the recent years patients who are admitted to the hospital with intense bone complaints are very unusual and multiple adenomas are also seldom. 22 years old ...
