Parathyroid hormone (PTH), which is secreted from parathyroid glands and controls blood calcium and phosphorus, have been usually used to monitor hyperparathyroidism and the response to calcimimetic drugs in routine clinical practice. One unique application is intraoperative parathyroid hormone (IOPTH), which can indicate whether the overactive parathyroid glands have been successfully removed or not. A special case of ectopic supernumerary parathyroid adenoma has been recently published in Clinical Chemistry
