Fahr syndrome, also known as bilateral striatopallidodentate calcinosis is a rare neurological disorder, characterized by abnormal vascular calcium deposits in the basal ganglia, cerebellar dentate nuclei and white matter [1,2]. Symptoms may contain deterioration of motor function, movement disorders like parkinsonism, Korea and athetosis, dementia, ataxia, seizures, headache, dysarthria, spasticity and psychiatric disorders. The major differential diagnosis includes hypoparathyroidism [2]. Here, we report a case of Fahr’s syndrome with calcification of the basal ganglia caused by hypoparathyroidism in a patent with fluctuation in consciousness and temporary vision loss.
