ARCE-LANGE, María Auxiliadora et al. Basal ganglia calcification in a case of Primary Hypoparathyroidism. Rev Ecuat Neurol [online]. 2021, vol.30, n.1, pp.189-191. ISSN 2631-2581.

Hypoparathyroidism is characterized by an insufficient production of parathyroid hormone, resulting in hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia, that without proper treatment can lead to multiple complications in different organs. We present the case of a patient with primary hypoparathyroidism, with basal ganglia calcifications as a complication of the disease and the therapeutic challenge it presents to improve the symptoms and quality of life.

Keywords : Hypoparathyroidism; Hypocalcemia; Calcifications..
