Basal ganglia calcification

Basal nucleus calcification is idiopathic basal nucleus calcification, also known as Fahr disease. Bilateral symmetrical basal nucleus calcification is caused by many reasons, which is called bilateral symmetrical basal nucleus calcification syndrome or Fahr syndrome. Calcification of globus pallidus and caudate nucleus is more common in the elderly and can also occur in normal people. Calcium spots after the age of 40 are more physiological and have no clinical significance. However, if calcification of basal nucleus is found in early skull X-ray, it should be regarded as abnormal. In addition to basal nucleus calcification, there is also cerebellar calcification. The lesions of basal nucleus calcification can lead to a variety of motor and cognitive disorders, including Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.
