Parathyroid adenoma is the most common cause of primary hyperparathyroidism. Parathyroid lipoadenoma is a rare and well-documented clinico-histological variant of parathyroid adenoma which owing to its bulky nature is found at aberrant locations and generally extends into the mediastinum, thus posing difficulty in diagnosis and surgical exploration. Here we present a young lady with classical signs and symptoms of primary hyper-parathyroidism who underwent excision of the single adenoma, and histologically diagnosed as a lipoadenoma. Here, we discuss the presentation and management of this rare variant.
