Abstract

A 7-day-old male baby was referred with history of persistent multifocal convulsions from second day of life. He was found to have hypocalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, normal serum magnesium and normal renal function tests. Serum parathormone was found to be elevated. Baby was diagnosed as case of pseudohypoparathyroidism and was treated with calcium supplementation and calcitriol. At 9 months he was asymptomatic on treatment, with normal Serum calcium and phosphorus.
