Abstract

We report the case of a 13 year-old white teenager who was referred for chronic bone pain. Physical examination showed a swelling of the anterior part of the neck and biological findings clearly evoked a primary hyperparathyroidism. The surgical treatment was successful and confirmed the diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma. Primary hyperparathyroidism being unusual in childhood, the eventuality of a multiple endocrine neoplasia is discussed.
