Abstract

Parathyroid adenoma within or adjacent to the vagus nerve is a rare ectopia, with only 21 cases reported in the literature [1,2,3]. A plausible explanation described by Gilmour in 1937 is that parathyroid elements, destined for the inferior parathyroid glands, may segregate and attach to the nerve during embryogenesis [4, 5].
