The normal weight of parathyroid gland lies between 50 and 70 mg. Any adenoma weighing more than 3.5 g is labeled giant parathyroid adenoma. It forms a distinct clinical entity in terms of difficulty in differentiation from parathyroid carcinoma and more aggressive postoperative management due to higher chances of postoperative hypocalcemia. We present the case report of a 35-year-old woman presenting with multiple fractures and neck swelling which was diagnosed as giant parathyroid adenoma and managed by parathyroidectomy.
