Abstract

Methylene blue administered intravenously at a dose of 5mg/kg of body weight was employed as an aid to the Intraoperative identification of the parathyroid glands in a patient undergoing surgery for hyperparathyroidism. A 2-cm adenoma was visualized by the staining and safely removed. There was no adverse side effect from this technique.<br>Localization of the parathyroid glands is often difficult, even for experienced surgeons. Various techniques for preoperative localization such as ultrasound, nuclear magnetic resonance, and technietium-99m-MIBI scan have been proposed, but their reliability varies to a great extent. The intraoperative infusion of methylene blue may be an effective, safe, and easy applicable method to quickly identify the parathyroid glands, thereby shortening the operating time.
