A 63-year-old woman with advanced chronic kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and peripheral vascular disease presented with three successive tonic–clonic seizures. She was obtunded, with a Glasgow coma scale score of 4/15 but with no lateralising neurological signs.

There was severe hyperparathyroidism (parathyroid hormone 48.8 pmol/L (1.7–7.6)).
