Parathyroid Adenoma Presenting as Spontaneous Cervical-Mediastinal and Retropleural Hematoma: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Sometimes, benign growths called adenomas appear on one or more of a person’s parathyroid glands. Adenomas cause the parathyroid gland to make more parathyroid hormone than the body needs, a condition called primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). PHPT is a common condition in the United States, with a prevalence of approximately 1 case per 1,000 adults. Too much parathyroid hormone increases the amount of calcium in the blood stream. However, hypercalcemia may not cause any symptoms. Parathyroid adenomas are usually discovered when a higher-than-normal calcium level shows up in a routine blood test.
