Resumo

GUZMAN G., Guillermo E.; AREVALO ESPEJO, Octavio; JIMENEZ PENAGOS, Karina  e  PEREZ, Oscar. Cerebral calcification syndrome associated with hypoparathyroidism. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.2, pp.114-117. ISSN 0120-8748.

Brain calcifications group diverse pathological entities that have often been referred to as Fahr disease. These have a clinical presentation which varies from subclinical course to several motor manifestations and dementia. We report the case of a 46 year old woman with generalized seizures associated with diffuse calcifications on postoperative hypoparathyroidism in whom calcium supplementation starts achieving resolution of the symptoms. This report highlights the pathophysiological approach by hypoparathyroidism brain calcifications, the importance of a general definition as in the brain calcification syndrome considering different known disease entities associated with different clinical spectrum and, finally, demonstrates the lack of research on the subject.

Palavras-chave : Basal ganglia calcifications; Fahr disease; Hypoparathyroidism.
