We present a case of an ectopic mediastinal parathyroid adenoma in a 58-year-old male patient. We show how different imaging modalities were successfully used to reach a diagnosis. We particularly focus on the role of four-dimensional CT scan in preoperative localization of ectopic adenomas and discuss how diverse imaging modalities can be integrated in the workup of ectopic parathyroid adenomas.
