The fact that this patient presented initially to primary care highlights the importance of the understanding of VGKC encephalitis by general practitioners. Treatment strategies involving the use of Carbamazepine, Benzipenes and Barbiturates may zskep underlying gait disorders [ 24 ]. The patient was a retired soldier and a non-smoker, who consumed alcohol only socially.

This case report describes a year-old man, who presented with life-threatening hyponatremia and confusion, following several months of gradually worsening faciobrachial dystonic seizures. Familial idiopathic striopallidodentate calcifications. It is associated with various target antigens and is difficult to diagnose, and experience with its treatment is limited. Calcification of the basal encephailtis is an incidental finding in about 0.

Progressive basal ganglia mineralization tends to compress the vessel lumen, thus initiating a cycle of impaired blood flow, neural tissue injury and mineral deposition. This was accompanied by a near-constant, right-sided, spasmodic jerking. These were characterized by facial contortion, and right encephalitie and wrist flexion, and finger extension.

Calcification was unilateral in 3 cases, bilateral and symmetric in 4 cases enxephalitis bilateral but asymmetric in 2 [ 44 ]. Neurological disorders in patients with basal ganglia calcification: At risk individuals should submit themselves for testing when required to make personal decisions regarding conception, financial matters and career planning.

It consists of growth failure with little or none post natal neurologic development, congenital cataract, eye anomalies, kyphosis and joint contracture [ 1735 ]. A second locus has been identified on chromosome 8 and a third on chromosome 2 [ 8 – 10 ]. There is also an indication to measure the levels of 1,25 hydroxy Vit D3 [ 2021 ]. In one study, patients were examined with CT scans, out of which 72 No potential conflict of interest relevant to this article was reported.


Neuropsychiatric illness may be present in the form of Schizophrenia like Psychosis, Dementia, Depression, Apoplexia, Deterioration of intelligence, inability to make decisions and effective organic alterations [ 285359 – 62 ].

Fahr’s syndrome: literature review of current evidence

A loss of function mutation in the gene encoding type III sodium dependent phosphate transporter 2 SLC20A2 located on chromosome 8 has also been reported as the molecular level to form the genetic basis for the pathophysiology of this disease [ 11 – 13 ]. Autoimmune limbic encephalitis is a recently described entity, whose pathogenesis remains poorly understood.

American Journal of Ence;halitis. Brain CT scan serves as a pre-symptomatic test in at risk individual but its not useful for predicting age of onset, severity, type of symptoms or rate of progression in an asymptomatic individual. Competing interest Authors declared they had no competing interest.

Charleston Gazette Newspaper Archives, Apr 19, , p. 10

The patient’s past medical history was notable for an ischemic stroke 8 years earlier, with mild residual weakness of the upper left limb, hypertension, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Intracranial calcifications in the differential diagnosis of epileptic disease] Rev Clin Esp.

Electron microscopy also shows the evidence of connection between spherical and hemispherical bodies encephalktis in the adventitia of blood vessel and surrounding glial cells while intima is usually preserved. The symmetrical intracerebral calcifications were consequential of the hypoparathyrodism [ 39 ].

Genetic counseling issues Family planning Optimal time for determination of genetic risk is before pregnancy. Please review our privacy policy. A rare case of idiopathic hypoparathyroidism with varied neurological manifestations. Association between a novel encepgalitis in SLC20A2 and familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification. While hyponatremia is a common finding in VGKC encephalitis, asymptomatic, chronically low serum sodium preceding an acute delirium is unusual.


Involuntary movements and muscle cramping.

It was first described by German neurologist Karl Theodor Fahr in [ 4 ]. He reacted to voice by opening his eyes, but he encephalutis only manage unintelligible speech. Abstract Autoimmune limbic encephalitis is a rare cause of encephalitic disease. This disorder is associated with a variety of other diseases but no specific etiologic agent has been identified yet.

PET findings and neuropsychological deficits in a case of Fahr’s disease.

Clinical early symptoms and CT findings in Fahr syndrome. Neuroferritinopathy It is also a form of NBIA and it typically manifests as adult onset chorea, dystonia and subtle cognitive defect along with excess iron storage or cystic degeneration in the Putamen [ 17 ].

A year-old man presented to his primary care physician with a recent onset of intermittent painful spasms of his right arm and face. Calcification in the basal ganglia with chronic active Epstein-Barr virus infection. Recurrent syncope and hypocalcaemic cardiomyopathy as manifestations of Fahr’s syndrome.

Presence of calcium deposits in this situation may be predictive of disease even in the absence of an identifiable familial mutation. At the molecular level, calcification generally develops within the vessel wall and in the perivascular space, ultimately extending to the neuron.

In adults loss of consciousness and seizures have been reported with hypothyroid hypocalcaemia [ 4849 ].
