Fahr's Disease: An Uncommon Cause of Intracranial Calcification in Children
Idiopathic bilateral striopallidodentate calcification or Fahr’s disease is a degenerative disease normally found in the 5-6th decade of life. Here we report one of the youngest cases of sporadic Fahr’s disease presenting at five years of age with minimal clinical features but extensive intracranial calcification, a rarity.
