With the widespread use of thyroid ultrasound, the detection rate of parathyroid incidentalomas as well as thyroid nodules has been on the increase. The differentiation between thyroid nodules and parathyroid nodules is occasionally difficult due to considerable overlap in terms of the sonographic findings. A case of parathyroid adenoma diagnosed with a measured parathyroid hormone level after fine needle aspiration washout is presented.
