  • Fahr's syndrome presenting with seizures in SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pneumonia-a case report. [Case Reports]
    Neurol Sci. 2020 Nov; 41(11):3063-3065.Demir G, Balaban O, … Erdem AF
  • CONCLUSIONS: As a result of the clinical, radiological, and biochemical evaluations, the patient was diagnosed incidentally as Fahr's syndrome associated with hypoparathyroidism. Seizures could be induced by hydroxychloroquine that was in the COVID-19 treatment or the inflammation caused by COVID-19 pneumonia. The association between the mortality of COVID-19 pneumonia and Fahr's syndrome is unknown which needs further research.
  • Fahr's Syndrome Misdiagnosed As Delusional Disorder: A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Noro Psikiyatr Ars. 2020 Sep; 57(3):254-256.Hurşıtoğlu O, Tuman TC
  • Fahr's disease is a rare neurological disorder that is characterized by bilateral basal ganglia calcification. In the present study, a 49-year-old male patient presented with delusional beliefs. He had normal neurologic examination. Follow-up mental status examination and clinical findings revealed delusional disorder. After three weeks, the patient presented to the clinic with postural tremor in…
  • Fahr's disease associated with anaplastic ependymoma: a case report and review of the literature. [Journal Article]
    Br J Neurosurg. 2020 Sep 10 [Online ahead of print]Batur A, Topaloğlu ÖF
  • Fahr's disease, also known as familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification or bilateral strio-pallido-dentate calcinosis, is a rare entity characterized by abnormal vascular calcium depositionin the thalamus, basal ganglia, cerebral cortex and the dentate nuclei of the cerebellum. Intracranial ependymomas comprise approximately 2% to 9% of all neuroepithelial tumors. It is reported that suprat…
  • Sepsis Unmasking Fahr's Disease. [Review]
    Am J Med Sci. 2020 Oct; 360(4):406-409.Mandal AKJ, Patel NB, Missouris CG
  • Fahr's disease is a sporadic or familial neurodegenerative disorder characterized by symmetrical calcification of cerebral structures, particularly the basal ganglia, cerebellar dentate nuclei and surrounding white matter, in the absence of metabolic causes of calcification. We report the case of a previously fit, high functioning 58-year-old man who developed catastrophic irreversible neuropsych…
  • Fahr's Disease In A Patient Presenting With Status Epilepticus. [Case Reports]
    J Ayub Med Coll Abbottabad. 2020 Apr- Jun; 32(2):280-282.Khalid S, Khan SA, … Khan AA
  • Fahr's disease is a rare disease in which there is symmetrical bilateral intracranial calcification. We are presenting a 50-year-old female patient who presented with status epilepticus. She had history of generalized tonic clonic fits for the last fifteen years. Her CT scan revealed widespread bilateral and symmetrical intracranial calcification in cerebellum, thalamus, basal ganglia and in whit…
  • Clinicopathological co-occurrence of Fahr's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies. [Journal Article]
    Clin Neuropathol. 2020 Sep/Oct; 39(5):227-231.Jensen MP, Spasic-Boskovic O, … Allinson KSJ
  • We present the clinicopathological findings of a case of combined Fahr's disease (FD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), associated with a novel pathogenic mutation. The patient presented with visual hallucinations, fluctuating confusion and parkinsonism, leading to a presumptive diagnosis of DLB. CT scan showed extensive bilateral parenchymal calcifications, suggestive of FD. DNA sequencing id…
  • Idiopathic Basal Ganglia Calcification: Fahr's Syndrome, a Rare Disorder. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2019 Oct 12; 11(10):e5895.Thillaigovindan R, Arumugam E, … Kesavan R
  • Fahr's syndrome is a rare neurological disorder with varied clinical manifestations. It is characterized by the progressive deposition of calcium in the walls of the blood vessels of basal ganglia and dentate nuclei of the cerebellum in young and middle-aged people. It is important for neurologists, geneticists, psychiatrists, dentists, and other appropriate care specialists to have a thorough kn…
  • Digenic Variants as Possible Clinical Modifier of Primary Familial Brain Calcification Patients. [Comment]
    J Mol Neurosci. 2020 01; 70(1):142-144.Borges-Medeiros RL, de Oliveira JRM
  • Primary familial brain calcification (PFBC), widely known as Fahr's disease, is a rare disorder caused by pathogenic variants in SLC20A2, PDGFB, PDGFRB, XPR1, or MYORG genes. It is characterized by ectopic brain calcification, mostly affecting basal ganglia, thalamus, and cerebellum. PFBC patients can present a wide spectrum of symptoms including cognitive, neuropsychiatric, and motor alterations…
  • Hypoparathyroidism with Fahr's syndrome: A case report and review of the literature. [Case Reports]
    World J Clin Cases. 2019 Nov 06; 7(21):3662-3670.Zhou YY, Yang Y, Qiu HM
  • CONCLUSIONS: The possibility of hypoparathyroidism should be considered in patients with chronic hypocalcemia, recurrent tetany, and even neuropsychiatric symptoms. Hypoparathyroidism is a common cause of basal ganglia calcification. Therefore, it is recommended that blood calcium, phosphorus, and PTH levels should be measured in all individuals with basal ganglia calcification to exclude hypoparathyroidism.
  • Pathological Mineralization: The Potential of Mineralomics. [Review]
    Materials (Basel). 2019 Sep 25; 12(19)Tsolaki E, Bertazzo S
  • Pathological mineralization has been reported countless times in the literature and is a well-known phenomenon in the medical field for its connections to a wide range of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular, and neurodegenerative diseases. The minerals involved in calcification, however, have not been directly studied as extensively as the organic components of each of the pathologies. The…
  • Basal Ganglia Calcification: A Case Report of Fahr Disease With Pure Psychiatric Symptoms. [Case Reports]
    J Psychiatr Pract. 2019 Sep; 25(5):391-394.Konstantinou G, Stavrinou A, … Vasilopoulou P
  • Fahr disease, also known as familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification, is a rare neurodegenerative disorder, the etiology of which remains unknown. Given its various presentations, Fahr disease is presumed to be underdiagnosed and its prevalence underestimated. We present a case of Fahr disease that presented mainly with pure psychiatric symptoms. Isolated psychiatric symptoms without neuro…
  • MYORG Mutations: a Major Cause of Recessive Primary Familial Brain Calcification. [Review]
    Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep. 2019 08 23; 19(10):70.Bauer M, Rahat D, … Arkadir D
  • Until recently, the gene associated with the recessive form of familial brain calcification (PFBC, Fahr disease) was unknown. MYORG, a gene that causes recessive PFBC was only recently discovered and is currently the only gene associated with a recessive form of this disease. Here, we review the radiological and clinical findings in adult MYORG mutation homozygous and heterozygous individuals.
  • Bilateral Basal Ganglia Calcification: Fahr's Disease. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2019 Jun 01; 11(6):e4797.Ooi HW, Er C, … Meyyur Aravamudan V
  • Fahr's disease/syndrome is a condition defined as bilateral striato-pallido-dentate calcinosis, a neurodegenerative disease with radiological findings of symmetrical and bilateral idiopathic calcifications of the cerebellum, periventricular white matter, and basal ganglia. Clinical correlation with radiological and a calcium metabolism panel is crucial in differentiating between Fahr's disease an…
