What are some causes of hypoparathyroidism?

Idiopathic hypoparathyroidism may be the result of the absence of parathyroid glands, brachial dysembriogenesis (DiGeorge syndrome), or polyglandular autoimmune disorder. Acquired forms can result from surgery, neck irradiation, or infiltrative diseases like hemochromatosis, amyloidosis, and thalassemia. The most common cause is hypomagnesemia.
