Family Medicine is a wonderful profession, where the beauty of all medical specialties can be faced, if using your head, heart, intuition and hands properly. This work-field allows us to be the witnesses of a real diagnostic pearls and requires doctors to become investigators. Research work in rural, solo, primary health care practices is not an easy work to do - isolation, burden of the poor and diseased, overload, lack of resources and being under-valued by the National Government are the key factors of the delayed development of research in this field. Contemporary views show, that research develops by itself and we cannot stay indifferent to it. The up-to-date study methods are limited, which make doctors to look for the ways to grow up with and co-develop. For instance, a primary hypothyroidism is not an everyday diagnosis to meet in a family doctor’s practice. It is actually quite a rare pathology. Even though benign solitary adenoma of a parathyroid gland accounts for 95 per cent of the cases of parathyroid adenomas, it still is a scattered phenomenon [1].
