GONZALEZ-CLAVIJO, Angélica María; FIERRO-MAYA, Luis Felipe; NEIRA, Fabián  and  GUEVARA, Oscar. Hepatic metastasis of a parathyroid carcinoma treated with intra-arterial embolization. [online]. 2017, vol.65, n.3, pp.521-524. ISSN 0120-0011.

This paper reports the case of a patient with parathyroid carcinoma and metastatic parathyroid carcinoma in the liver, as well as persistent hypercalcemia resistant to the management with zoledronic acid and cinacalcet.

The patient was treated with intra-arterial embolization using polyvinyl alcohol microspheres in the right hepatic artery, achieving an excellent biochemical control after the intervention.

Keywords : Parathyroid Cancer; Hypercalcemia; Therapeutic Embolization (MeSH).
