FIRST PARAGRAPH: A parathyroid adenoma is a benign neoplasm of parathyroid parenchymal cells. There is an association with the HRPT2 gene (1q25-q31), which is associated with hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor syndrome (an autosomal dominant disorder). Parathyroid adenoma is the single most common cause of hyperparathyroidism. It is usually seen in patients in the fourth and fifth decades of life, and women are affected more often than men by a margin of 3 or 4 to 1.
