    We present a case of hypoparathyroidism, demonstrating extensive intracranial calcification, not only in basal ganglia, but also outside the extrapyramidal system. The patient presented with an unexplained epileptifors disorder, accompanied by extrapyramidal dysfunction in the form of choreoathetosis and hemiballismus. Hemiballismus is reported for the first time to our knowledge in association with hypoparathyroidism.
