Etiologic diagnosis of seizure requires proper consideration of apparently unrelated clinical features of the patient. Here, we report the case of a patient of status epilepticus with moderate-to-severe bilateral sensorineural deafness. Investigations showed extensive intracranial calcification, hypoparathyroidism and unilateral renal agenesis. The features were consistent with Barakat syndrome, a rare developmental disorder associated with mutations in the GATA3 gene. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Barakat syndrome from India.
