|Parathyroid adenoma causing hyperparathyroidism occurs mainly in age groups between 50 to 60 years. It is rare in children. Presentation in Paediatric patients with primary hyperparathyroidism is usually with vague symptoms like anorexia, nausea, vomiting, constipation, irritability, polyuria and polydipsia. Few can present with nephrolithiasis, bone pain, rickets or acute pancreatitis. Here, we are presenting a rare case of a 12 years old female child who presented with chief complaints of recurrent abdominal pain for two months. Various investigations proved it to be a case of primary hyperparathyroidism due to parathyroid adenoma and it was successfully treated with surgery.|
