Abstract

Intracranial calcificaticn is present in about 1% of subjects undergoing routine brain CT-ffypcparathynoidign, Cowi's syndrans and mitcchcndrial eneephalopathy rmy be associated with brain calcificaticn, but sporadic idiopa= thic cases are ccmnrn.Ih very few families idicpathic brain calcificaticn is inherited with autceoiHl donirant faatures. We performsd a 3 year clirucal,neurophysiolcgical,nairo= psycolcgical and neuroimaging follow-up en two subjects fron a family with autoscmal damnant idiopathic brain calcificaticn and on two sibs affected by hypoparathyroi dism associated with brain calcificaticn. We aimed to delineate the prcgressicn of nervcus system invDlvanaitjto ccnpare findings in the two families. Mreover.we investigated the possibility of a mtCNA mAaticn in cur patients.
