Case Study
The article presents a case of a 48-year-old woman with a history of passing a renal stone of unknown composition. This patient was considered a surgical candidate due to a markedly elevated 24-hour urine calcium based on the 1990 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Statement Panels. She underwent Tc99m sestamibi parathyroid scan and neck ultrasonography. A diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma was confirmed by immunocytochemistry, which demonstrated cells staining for parathyroid hormone.
