Abstract

We report the case of an adolescent with cerebral calcification of unknown aethiologhy, diagnosed as Fahr disease. Clinically extrapyramidal and mild pyramidal signs were present since the age of five, when he was adopted, without a significant progression. Parents have no information about the newborn period. The past history is negative for seizures. Patient's I.Q. is 67% (WAIS) with a mild deterioration. Brain CT-scan showed cerebral calcification of the basal ganglia, brainstem and cortex. Idiopathic calcification of the basal ganglia results from a collection of different disorders that have little in common. The main inflammatory, vascular, endocrine, tumors, metabolic and toxic causes are discussed in relation to the patient's history and neuroimaging correlates.
