The atypical location of the adenoma of the parathyroid gland occurs not frequently. The most common place of the ectopia is the thymus. Many diagnostic methods have to be used to establish the point of the abnormal locality of the parathyroid gland adenoma. Among them are USG, CT, MRI and technetium 99m scan. We reported on the young woman with the unusual clinical case – the two parathyroid gland adenomas, one of which was located in thymus. The second adenoma was found only after primary surgical elimination of the first one, and absence of the hormone level normalization. It was located in thymus. The second surgery procedure was performed-thoracoscopic thymectomia. The patient completely recovered.
