Hypocalcaemia results from impaired mobilization of calcium form bone and urinary loss calcium due to parathyroid hormone unresponsiveness and reduced intestinal absorption of calcium via deficient generation of active Vitamin D. Hypocalcemia can have myriads of presentation. We present here an unusual case of hypocalcemia in an 8-year-old girl presenting as intractable seizure and treated successfully with oral calcium-calcitriol supplement which brought prompt relief from hypocalcemic symptoms and became absolutely seizure free within 5 months of followup.
