Abstract
Brown tumors are erosive bony lesions caused by chronic excessive secretion of parathyroid hormone. Since the introduction of routine calcium measurement, the diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism has usually been made in asymptomatic patients and as a result, brown tumors are rarely observed as an initial manifestation of hyperparathyroidism.
Key Words: brown tumor, forearm, hyperparathyroidism
