Abstract

Background. Are double parathyroid adenomas a discrete clinical entity or are all hyperplastic parathyroid glands of varying size? This investigation was done to determine whether patients with persistent or recurrent hyperparathyroidism and double adenomas (DA) differ in clinical profile or in response to treatment from patients with hyperplasia.
