Abstract The prognosis of parathyroid carcinoma varies significantly between numerous studies. Therefore, many attempts have been made to grade the degree of parathyroid carcinoma, and recently, classifying parathyroid carcinomas into either minimally invasive or widely invasive carcinoma- similar to follicular carcinoma of the thyroid- has led to a more reliable prediction of the prognosis. Hungry bone syndrome can occur if parathyroidectomy is performed due to primary hyperparathyroidism regardless of the cause of the disease. Hungry bone syndrome is characterized by postoperative a hypocalcemic state due to remineralization of various minerals, including calcium, of the bone; this syndrome requires a long-term supplementation of calcium. The authors aim to report, along with a review of related literatures, 1 case of a 29-year-old female patient diagnosed with minimally invasive parathyroid carcinoma who fell into hungry bone syndrome after parathyroidectomy.
