Abstract

It has become rare to find the typical radiological manifestations of primary hyperparathyroidism like generalized osteoporosis, brown tumors and advanced bone resorption because of the generalized usage of biochemical screening techniques. We present a 17-year-old patient with a parathyroid adenoma resulting in these typical skeletal manifestation throughout the skeleton combined with secondary bilateral slipped capital femur epiphysiolysis
