Abstract

Calcification beyond basal ganglia is rare in postoperative permanent hypoparathyroidism. We report extensive bilateral intracranial calcifications involving basal ganglia, thalamus, cerebellum, and cerebral cortex in a 56-year-old lady who presented with carpopedal spasm, seizure, and severe hypocalcemia after 20 years of near-total thyroidectomy.
