Tertiary hyperparathyroidism (TH) is a rare condition that develops from secondary hyperparathyroidism in cases when the secretion becomes autonomous. Brown tumors (BTs) are rare skeletal lesions of hyperparathyroidism that may mimic cancer metastasis. We report a case of a patient who was diagnosed with TH with multiple BTs which mimics osteolytic/osteoblastic metastases that were evaluated with two fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography scans with an interval of 23 months in the preoperative and postoperative period.
