Introduction: Parathyroids are derived from third and fourth branchial pouches and neuroendocrine C-cells originate for neighboring fifth branchial pouch. A close ontogenic relation between these embryonal pouches is illustrated in DiGeorge syndrome wherein there is an absence of parathyroid glands and C-cells. It is not known for certain if normal parathyroids contain NE cells. However, NETs of the parathyroid have been reported in two other cases (Medline search: 1966-2011).
