Primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is the unregulated overproduction of parathyroid hormone due to abnormal parathyroid gland which results in abnormal calcium homeostasis. PHPT in pregnancy is a rare and often unrecognised condition which possesses a threat to both the mother and the foetus. Papillary carcinoma of the thyroid is the most common thyroid malignancy and its management is quite challenging when it is diagnosed during pregnancy. Herewith, we report the case of a 28-year-old pregnant woman who presented with severe hyperemesis and hypercalcaemia due to PHPT along with incidentally detected metastatic papillary carcinoma thyroid complicating the pregnancy.
