Corticobasal degeneration syndrome with basal ganglia calcification: Fahr's disease as a corticobasal look-alike?
Warren JD., Mummery CJ., Al-Din AS., Brown P., Wood NW.
A 57-year-old man with a 5-year history of progressive left-sided rigidity and apraxia had extensive bilateral calcification of basal ganglia, centrum semiovale, dentate nuclei, and cerebellar white matter on brain imaging. The case is an example of radiological Fahr's disease accompanying a clinical syndrome of corticobasal degeneration. Possible pathogenetic and nosological implications of this association are discussed.
