Hyperplastic and neoplastic parathyroid lesions may present overlapping morphologic features, and several markers have been proposed to distinguish benign from malignant growths. Recently, it was reported that galectin-3 is a useful marker of malignancy in uniglandular parathyroid diseases. To investigate galectin-3 and Ki-67 immunoexpression in parathyroid hyperplastic disease, 63 multiglandular lesions (13 primary, 40 secondary, and 10 tertiary hyperplasia cases) were analyzed and compared… CONTINUE READING
