Understanding parathyroid gland anatomy and intraoperative attention to detail facilitates the identification of normal parathyroids during thyroidectomies. Parathyroid glands can be seen as distinct from surrounding neck tissues and thyroid gland through recognition of a number of different characteristics, which are critical for every thyroid surgeon to know. Herein we describe the normal characteristics of parathyroid gland and surrounding anatomical structures to aid in easy identification.
