CACERES ESCOBAR, Daniela  and  RESTREPO VALENCIA, César Augusto. Double parathyroid adenoma as presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism and details of its treatment. Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2016, vol.41, n.3, pp.198-201. ISSN 0120-2448.

Historically primary hyperparathyroidism has been a condition characterized by the finding of a parathyroid adenoma; however, diagnosis in the presence of a double adenoma has opened the discussion against a new form of presentation with different clinical implications that require the coordinated participation of the group of professionals involved in both the clinical and surgical settings that allow face this diagnosis challenge with the best knowledge and available resources. The case of a patient in whom after a long history of episodes of urolithiasis was possible to identify two parathyroid adenomas that did not respond to treatment with high doses of cinacalcet but with a successful outcome after surgical management, is reported. (Acta Med Colomb 2016; 41: 198-201).

Keywords : primary hyperparathyroidism; double adenoma; cinacalcet.
