Fahr's Syndrome, also known as Familial Idiopathic Basal Ganglia Calcification, is a dominant genetic disorder that causes calcium build-up in the basal ganglia and cerebral cortex, which are areas of the brain that control movement. There is no cure for Fahr's Syndrome, and current treatment is based on the symptoms of the patient. The neurological disease typically appears when the individual is in their 40s or 50s, though it can appear in childhood. Symptoms include stiffness, seizures, paralysis, disorientation, and trouble with speech and motor function. The specific gene responsible for Fahr's Syndrome is still unknown, but research to determine the gene is being conducted.
