Intramuscular hemangioma of the temporalis muscle with incidental finding of bilateral symmetric calcification of the basal ganglia: a case report



Intramuscular hemangioma of the temporalis muscle with incidental finding of bilateral symmetric calcification of the basal ganglia: a case report



Pediatrics and Neonatology 51(5): 296-299



We report an 11-year-old boy whose brain computed tomography findings incidentally revealed bilateral basal ganglia calcification. He was symptom-free and had no abnormal neurological findings. He was diagnosed with Fahr's disease based on radiological findings and after excluding other etiologies such as infection, metabolic disorders, congenital malformation and malignancies. Most of the reported cases display an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. Although Fahr's disease is a rare cause of basal ganglia calcification in children, this disease should be considered in children with a family history of neuropsychiatric disorders.
