Bilateral Striopallidodentat Calcinosis also called Fahr's disease (FH); basal ganglia, thalamus, and cerebellar dentate nucleus is a disease characterized by symmetric calcifications in the cerebral white matter. Calcifications are often drawn attention in brain imaging for other reasons. The disease can progress with clinically variable neurological or neuro-psychiatric symptoms. Fahr's disease are believed to be associated with anoxia, radiation, systemic diseases, toxins calcium metabolism disorders, and encephalitis. We presented two cases with primary hypoparathyroidism were diagnosed and detected of neurological problems, cerebral and cerebellar calcifications on imaging.
