Hypoparathyroidism leading to status dystonicus is rarely reported in literature. The authors present an 8-y-old girl with idiopathic familial hypoparathyroidism who presented with status dystonicus. She was managed successfully with midazolam infusion, calcium and vitamin D supplementation, and oral anti-dystonia drugs.
