Hyperparathyroid crisis is a serious and potentially life threatening complication of markedly increased serum calcium concentrations most commonly due to severe primary hyperparathyroidism. Identification and resection of the adenoma leads to cure of the disease. Parathyroidectomy for localized adenomas can be done under local anaesthesia and sedation or a cervical plexus block with sedation besides general anaesthesia. We report a case of successful management of a patient who presented with hyperparathyroid crisis and underwent emergency parathyroidectomy under combined deep and superficial cervical plexus block.
