Hypoparathyroidism cases without etiology diagnosed in the first 10 years of life are called as idiopathic hypoparathyroidism (IHP). IHP is a rare endocrinological disorder among hypoparathyroidism cases, and the anomalies accompanying it are infrequently observed. Ca++ metabolism disorders occurring during the formation of tooth germs may cause enamel defects in teeth, enamel hypoplasia, enlarged pulp chambers, short roots, late eruptions, and missing teeth. The case presented in this article is a good example in terms of demonstrating how tooth damage ends with the commencement of treatment. Within this article, the results of a 9-year-old male IHP patient are discussed based on the literature. The said patient could not be diagnosed until the age of 18 months so developed enamel hypoplasia as well as enamel defects in this period due to abnormal mineralization, and no problems were observed in his dental tissue that formed after the ionic equilibrium was ensured following the diagnosis.
