We report the extremely rare case of a giant double parathyroid adenoma. A 56- year-old female was admitted to hospital due to primary hyperparathyroidism. During the typical investigation a giant tumor of parathyroid origin was detected behind the right thyroid lobe. The patient underwent neck exploration with double parathyroidectomy and right thyroid lobectomy. Based on the histological findings, the diagnosis of giant double adenomas of the right superior and right inferior parathyroid glands was set, while the thyroid gland showed nodular goiter lesions. Primary hyperparathyroidism may be difficult to be recognized since most cases are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. Preoperative investigation can contribute to define the appropriate surgical strategy.
