The incidence of parathyroid carcinoma is about 0.5% of cases of primary hyperparathyroidism, however, its incidence in dialysis patients with secondary or tertiary hyperparathyroidism is very rare and around 20 patients has been reported yet. About 10% of all parathyroid cancers are nonfunctioning and are associated with poor prognosis.
