This case of primary hyperparathyroidism presented several unusual features: the only presenting symptoms were two gingival giant cell lesions (brown tumors); bone changes occurred early in the disease, but apparently affected only the mandible and maxilla; and no renal disease could be detected. The diagnosis, treatment and postoperative course of this unusual case has been described.
