ABSTRACT

Parathyroid adenoma (PTA) causing hyperparathyroidism and hypercalcemia leading to pancreatitis is reported. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) can help in the localization of PTA. We report a case of EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy-proven PTA which is not reported in literature to our knowledge.
