In this work, several objections that might be cited against atlases have been artfully overcome. This has been accomplished by a text which plainly correlates the depicted material with function and clinical manifestations. Important anatomical features of the parathyroid glands and sustaining allusions to embryology are presented, followed by an exposé of hyperplastic and neoplastic lesions classified according to their capacity to influence calcium metabolism. The structural changes that result from this influence are presented to complete related clinico-pathologic entities. Significant chemical features are presented but not enlarged upon. The reader is directed through the bibliography to valuable sources for
