Your parathyroid glands produce parathyroid hormone (PTH). Primary hyperparathyroidism is a condition in which one or more of the parathyroid glands makes too much PTH. This can lead to the loss of bone tissue. This condition is more common in women than in men. A job of PTH is to keep blood calcium levels from going too low. The parathyroid gland is made up of four small glands behind the thyroid gland. They usually are about the size of a kernel of corn. Usually, one parathyroid gland is located near each corner of the thyroid. Some people are missing a parathyroid gland or have an extra one. The parathyroid glands may be misplaced in other glands but still work.
Unaware of Owen's description, he described the glands in his monograph "On a New Gland in Man and Fellow Animals" as the "glandulae parathyroidae", noting its existence in dogs, cats, rabbits, oxen, horses and humans. For several years, Sandström's description received little : superior thyroid artery, inferior thyroid artery. The parathyroid glands are tiny, round structures usually found embedded in the posterior surface of the thyroid gland ().A thick connective tissue capsule separates the glands from the thyroid tissue. Most people have four parathyroid glands, but occasionally there are more in tissues of the neck or chest.
The parathyroid glands are small endocrine glands located in the anterior neck. They are responsible for the production of parathyroid hormone, which acts to control calcium levels in the body.. This article will consider the anatomical location, vessels and nerves of the parathyroid glands, as well as some clinical correlations/5(36). The Patient’s Guide to Hyperparathyroidism provides a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the decisions influencing your care when you have been diagnosed with hypercalcemia or hyperparathyroidism.
