Abstract

Fahr's disease is a rare disease characterized by idiopathic abnormal deposits of calcium in intracranial areas. Fahr's syndrome occurs secondarily to other diseases. Endocrine disorders, particularly parathyroid hormone disorders, are most commonly associated with Fahr's syndrome. Common clinical features of Fahr's disease or syndrome include movement disorder, phychiatric disorder, epileptic seizure, dementia, headache, dystonia, myoclonus, tremor, and parkinsonism. We report on a case of a 35-year-old woman with Fahr's syndrome who presented with epileptic seizure and pseudohypoparathyroidism.
