Hypocalcaemia as presenting symptom of velocardiofacial syndrome.


Hypocalcaemia due to hypoparathyroidism is a rare finding in adults. The coexistence of cardiac abnormalities may be suggestive of a hereditary syndrome. We describe a case of velocardiofacial syndrome in a woman without a family history of this disorder. The hypocalcaemia was treated with calcium and vitamin D supplementation.
