A patient with a palpable nodule in the throat due to a cystic parathyroid adenoma.

- In a 38-year-old woman who was examined because of an otherwise asymptomatic palpable nodule in the thyroid region, a cystic parathyroid adenoma was diagnosed. The aspirate was clear with a slight yellowish colour and a very high parathormone concentration. The serum-calcium concentration was also very high. The lesion was surgically removed. The surgical specimen contained a parathyroid adenoma with pseudocystic degenerative changes. The patient recovered fully.
