Parathyroid carcinoma is an uncommon endocrine malignancy comprising 0.5%-2% of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. The probability of an intrathyroidal location is low (0.2%) and make preoperative suspicion and diagnosis challenging. Less than 20 cases of intrathyroidal parathyroid carcinoma have been reported. We introduce a case of intrathyroidal parathyroid carcinoma mimicking a suspicious thyroid nodule, and review the literature, with a focus on the role of adjuvant radiotherapy.
