Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is a key in maintaining calcium homeostasis. Decreased PTH will result in decreased bone remodeling and increased bone density. The major cause is iatrogenic injury to parathyroid gland. X-ray and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry are used to identify the skeletal changes. Typical skeletal changes are metaphyseal sclerosis in long bones and sclerosis of vertebrae and pelvic bones. 99mTc methylene diphosphonate scintigraphy is used to identify metabolic bone diseases. There are no typical scan findings in case of hypoparathyroidism. We like to report an interesting image of skeletal scintigraphy in case of hypoparathyroidism.
