Abstract: A case of hyperfunctioning parathyroid carcinoma was found in a 78-year-old female who had suffered from hypercalcemia for 5 years. She died of renal failure and pulmonary edema. Autopsy revealed an encapsulated tumor arising from the left upper parathyroid gland. Histologically, fibrous trabeculae, capsular invasion and blood vessel invasion were occasionally present in this tumor, suggesting that this tumor was malignant. However, mitotic figures were rarely observed. We reviewed reported cases of parathyroid carcinoma and discussed about the significance of mitosis for diagnosis.
