- BASAL GANGLIA CALCIFICATION, IDIOPATHIC, 7, AUTOSOMAL RECESSIVE
Basal ganglia calcification, idiopathic, 7, autosomal recessive (IBGC7): A form of basal ganglia calcification, a genetically heterogeneous condition characterized by symmetric calcification in the basal ganglia and other brain regions. Affected individuals can either be asymptomatic or show a wide spectrum of neuropsychiatric symptoms, including parkinsonism, dystonia, tremor, ataxia, dementia, psychosis, seizures, and chronic headache. Serum levels of calcium, phosphate, alkaline phosphatase and parathyroid hormone are normal. The neuropathological hallmark of the disease is vascular and pericapillary calcification, mainly of calcium phosphate, in the affected brain areas. [MIM:618317]
