Abstract: Undescended parathyroid adenomas are rare, and they are easily missed during neck exploration surgery in patients with hyperparathyroidism. Few reports have described ectopic parathyroid adenomas along the carotid arteries at or near the carotid bifurcation. These may be missed on planar Tc-MIBI dual-phase scintigraphy because of overlapping submandibular gland activity. Our case demonstrates the potential advantage of SPECT/CT in parathyroid scintigraphy to overcome this limitation.
