Abstract

Primary hyperparathyroidism is very rare in children and adolescents. The management of a 12-year-old boy with renal calculi due to parathyroid adenoma is discussed. The single tumor after localization with sestamibi scintigraphy and SPECT-CT scan was excised with amelioration of symptoms. The case is reported due to the rarity of the disease and successful unilateral exploration. The association with hypopigmented areas of skin has also not been previously reported in literature.

Keywords: child; nephrolithiasis; parathyroid adenoma; primary hyperparathyroidism; sestamibi scintigraphy
