Potassium channel antibody-associated encephalopathy: Most patients have raised CSF protein and many have a lymphocytic pleocytosis.

It was first described by German emcephalitis Karl Theodor Fahr in [ 4 ].

Idiopathic calcification of the basal ganglia. Intracranial calcifications in the differential diagnosis of epileptic disease] Rev Clin Esp. In one case report it was reported that reduced glucose uptake in PET scan was not only confined to the Putamen and Globus Pallidus, but extended to involve the temporal and parietal cortices, bilaterally.

Idiopathic hypoparathyroidism is an uncommon condition characterized by the absence, fatty replacement or atrophy of the parathyroid glands. In a study of 24 subjects from six kindreds with MELAS myopathy, encephalopathy, lactoacidosis and stroke like syndromeresults revealed that bilateral basal ganglia calcification is the commonest radiological finding in mitochondrial disease [ 4243 ].

Neuropsychiatric symptoms These range from mild difficulty with concentration and memory to askeep in personality or behaviors to psychosis and dementia [ 828 ]. At the molecular level, calcification generally develops within the vessel wall and in the perivascular space, ultimately extending to the neuron.

Average age of onset of PHP is at eight to ten years, and its clinical manifestations are similar encephaltiis hypoparathyrodism except that intellectual disability is slightly more common in pseudohypoparathyroidism. It is associated with various target antigens and is difficult to diagnose, and experience with its treatment is limited.

Fahr’s syndrome: literature review of current evidence

This was thought to have caused the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of anti-diuretic hormone SIADHwhich induced critical hypoosmolar hyponatremia, with confusion and ataxia. European Journal of Neurology: Plain skull radiograph The plain skull radiograph has been shown to be the imaging modality of diagnostic value. Microscopy reveals perivascular granules lying in the region above midbrain. There is also an indication to measure the levels of 1,25 hydroxy Vit D3 [ 2021 ].

Serum paraneoplastic antibodies were negative. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. The serum concentrations of calcium and phosphorus are normal and there is a normal response to PTH secretion [ 1740 ].

Lesions were reported to be located in Globus Pallidus in 16 FDSs usually evolve over weeks or months, but fulminant presentations do occur. Previously, low serum sodium has only been reported in patients with prior evidence of encephalopathy, such as subacute memory impairment or worsening irritability. Identification of a locus on chromosome 14q for idiopathic basal ganglia calcification Fahr disease Am J Hum Genet. Secondary Hypoparathyrodism occur post-thyroidectomy as a complication of surgery.

Given the prompt improvement in his mental state, upon reversal of hyponatremia, it is hypothesized that this patient’s encephalopathy was a consequence of critical hyponatremia, rather than cognitive deficits from encephalitis per se. Calcifications commonly occur in basal ganglia, thalamus, dentate nucleus, cerebral cortex, cerebellum subcortical white matter, and hippocampus [ 1418 ].
