Familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification(FIBGC) is an inheritable neurological condition characterized by calcium deposits in the basal ganglia and extra-basal ganglia areas. The condition manifests as parkinsonism and other variable neuropsychiatric symptoms. FIBGC is a rare condition, and its pathophysiology has not yet been fully elucidated. Here we report the results of a clinical study of two related patients diagnosed with FIBGC.
