A 48 year old lady was referred to BIRDEM Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh by her local physician for evaluation of hypercalcaemia and increased serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) in the background history of low trauma fracture. Ultrasound of neck and parathyroid scintigraphy with 99mTc-MIBI revealed a parathyroid adenoma. Parathyroidectomy was done. Histopathology report showed features consistent with parathyroid adenoma. Primary hyperparathyroidism should be kept in mind in all patients presenting with history of bone problems ranging from simple bone pain to spontaneous or low trauma fracture associated with hypercalcemia. By the help of appropriate localization technique it can be localized and cured by parathyriodectomy.
