Fig. 2. Case 1: (A) Because right lower parathyroid gland was not found in a location where it usually would be, we scrutinized thyroid tissue to exclude possibility of embedded parathyroid beneath the thyroid capsule, or intrathyroidal parathyroid. (B) When we lighted the thyroid gland by near infrared light, we could find a bright, glowing parathyroid gland (arrow). (C) We carefully peeled the thyroid capsule, We found a parathyroid gland buried in the thyroid tissue (arrow) beneath the thyroid capsule. (D) The parathyroid gland is being carefully dissected while near infrared rays are being lighted.
