Abstract

Mediastinal parathyroid cysts (PC) are rare, benign lesions, reported in fewer than 150 cases worldwide. Although most are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally on imaging, symptoms of dyspnea, dysphagia, hoarseness, palpitations, hypercalcemia, and innominate or jugular venous thrombosis have been reported. Sternotomy or thoracotomy has traditionally been the approach used to resect mediastinal PCs. We describe the first reported case of a robot-assisted resection of a mediastinal PC.
