A case of hypoparathyroidism accompanied with Turner's syndrome is reported. On admission, a 44-year-old woman had facial dystonia, deafness, and primary amenorrhea. Laboratory examinations showed a decrease in serum PTH and mosaicism of 45, X and 46, XX(6:34). A brain CT revealed marked calcification in the basal ganglia, cerebellum and periventricular area. Antiparkinsonian drugs were found to be effective for the dystonia. This case therefore suggests that some relationship may exist between intracranial calcification and Turner's syndrome.
