Parathyroid tumors as lateral pharyngeal masses: report of a case

This is the first reported case in the literature describing a patient free of the systemic biochemical effects of hyperparathyroidism who presented with a lateral pharyngeal mass. Diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma was made by means of a transoral biopsy prior to definitive surgical treatment. The role of parathyroid lesions in lateral cervical masses is discussed.
