Idiopathic hypoparathyroidism (IHP) is a rare endocrinopathy, characterized by the disturbances in the calcium and phosphorous metabolism, owing to deficiency in parathyroid hormone, which leads to tetanic manifestations. Onset of the clinical features occurs early in the life and the seventy depends on the extent of chemical imbalance. This article describes a case of 22-year-old male patient undiagnosed for 12 years with this endocrinopathy (IHP). Overretained deciduous teeth, delayed eruption, impacted tooth and short roots probably resulting from untreated hypocalcemia during the developmental phase of dentition enabled us to unearth this endocrinopathy through a series of investigations. Thus, the article emphasizes the importance of dental findings of this endocrinopathy.
