Abstract: 

Objective Kearns-Sayre syndrome is a mitochondrial myopathy, which was first described by Tomas Kearn in 1958. Diagnostic symptoms include retinitis pigmentosa, chronic and progressive external ophthalmoplegia plus one or more of following factors: heart conduction system disorders, cerebellar ataxia, or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) protein content above 100 mg/dL. The nature of this uncommon disease is yet to be clarified. In this paper, we report a case of Kearns-Sayre syndrome. According to the previous records, the first manifestation of Kearns- Sayre syndrome as hypoparathyroidism is uncommon and in this article, we report a case with this problem.
