Abstract

Preoperative localization of parathyroid adenomas is useful in patients undergoing parathyroidectomy. The authors report a patient with hyperparathyroidism and an associated nontoxic nodular goiter. Technetium- 99m sestamibi scintigraphy localized and differentiated the parathyroid adenoma from the multinodular goiter. Excellent correlation was found between preoperative radionuclide imaging and surgical pathology. Technetium-99m sestamibi parathyroid imaging may be a simple and helpful test in the surgical management of parathyroid adenomas, particularly in patients with nontoxic multinodular goiter.
