Fahr disease features sporadic or familial calcifications of the basal ganglia leading to neurological and psychiatric disturbances. Here we describe a case of Fahr disease with striking computed tomography scan images.
A 50-year-old man with no relevant medical history (started in 2000) suddenly experienced dysarthria and complained about having lockjaw and a deviation of the right corner of his mouth for a period of 6 hours. Although other symptoms disappeared, his dysarthria persisted.
