Computed tomography evaluation revealed cortical calcifications (Figure 1) and enlargement of the right choroid plexus (Figure 1). There was right hemisphere cerebral atrophy with associated expansion of the right frontal sinus, thickening of the diploic space, and elevation of the petrous ridge (Figure 2).
