We report three children with pseudohypoparathyroidism aged 13-16 years who presented with seizures and tetany. CT scan revealed striatopallidal calcification in two. MRI revealed wide-spread involvement showing T1 hyperintensity in striatopallidodentate distribution in all three and midbrain in one patient. T2 and FLAIR images were normal. T1 hyperintensity could represent early stage of calcification in whom MRI is more sensitive.
