Ectopic brain calcification in a 31-year-old man with hypoparathyroidism and hypocalcemia (CT)

Axial sections of a CT scan of the brain showing bilateral symmetrical calcification in a 31-year-old man with hypoparathyroidism and hypocalcemia. The calcification is evident as hyperdensities, which are predominantly located in the basal ganglia (red arrow) and thalami (yellow arrow). Smaller lesions are also seen in the frontal cortex (green arrow) and cerebellum (white arrow). (From: Gaba S, Singla M, Gupta M, Dua A, Gaba N.
