Ectopic parathyroid adenomas are one of the causes of failed neck exploration for primary hyperthyroidism. Location of the ectopic gland in the pyriform recess is rarely described premortem. Moreover, removal of such an ectopically located gland using an endoscopic approach, thereby avoiding potentially morbid repeated open neck explorations, to our knowledge, has not been described.
