A case of hyperparathyroidism, who presented with unusual complex neurological symptomatology is reported. Mental confusion, asterixis and elevated cerebrospinal fluid protein with marked pleocytosis dominated the neurological picture. All these findings subsided upon correction of hypercalcemia, suggesting direct relationship between cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities, asterixis and this metabolic disturbance.
