Primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) is a condition caused by excessive and uncontrolled secretion of parathyroid hormone. The classical presenting symptoms in primary hyperparathyroidism are renal stones, hypercalcemic crisis, soft tissue calcifications, and cystic bone disease. Although most cases of pHPT are detected early and before symptomatic lesions appear, some patients may present late in the course of their disease. In this report, we present a patient with extensive parenchymal calcifications forming a cast of the right kidney which is called as "putty kidney" with Brown tumor located in the pubic ramus.
