Objective Germline mutations in the HRPT2 gene are associated with the hereditary hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumour syndrome (HPT-JT) and a subset of familial isolated hyperparathyroidism (FIHP). Somatic HRPT2 mutations are detected in sporadic parathyroid carcinomas and less frequently in cystic adenomas. The purpose of this study was to investigate the underlying HRPT2 defect in a young patient with symptomatic hyperparathyroidism due to an apparently sporadic parathyroid adenoma with cystic features.
