Intrathyroidal parathyroid adenoma (IPA) can be a cause of failed cervical exploration for primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). There is a lot of controversy regarding the correct approach and extent of exploration in such cases. Herein, we report the case of a 37-year-old female who was managed for PHPT with right-sided IPA after correlating preoperative ultrasonography and99mTc-sestamibi scan. A high index of suspicion, preoperative identification, and planning is very important to avoid unnecessary dissection and failure to remove the diseased gland in such cases.
