Abstract
In cases of Fahr's syndrome, calcium and other minerals are stored bilaterally, and almost always symmetrically. These minerals are typically stored in the basal ganglia, thalamus, centrum semioval, cerebellar dentate nucleus, and periventricular white matter. Here, we present a rare case of Fahr's syndrome in a female patient with unusual calcifications in the central pons.
