Recurrence of hyperparathyroidism (HPT) following total parathyroidectomy and autotransplantation (APTX) has been reported before. However, no data about the time interval between grafting and relapse and about morphology were given. Only 1 case of primary hyperparathyroidism with APTX has been extensively analyzed. We have performed autotransplantation in 42 patients with HPT due to chronic renal failure. Implanted parathyroid tissue showed typical chief cell hyperplasia. Within 4–33 months, 6… CONTINUE READING
