Abstract

The development of hyperparathyroidism after radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy has been reported in 38 cases in the literature. However, the development of a parathyroid adenoma after RAI therapy for a hyperfunctioning multinodular goiter has not been reported. This report describes the pathologic and operative finding on a patient with both hyperthyroidism and hyperparathyroidism, which was diagnosed after previous RAI therapy for a toxic, multinodular goiter.
