where are these calcium deposits on the brain?

sometimes calcium can be seen on the blood vessel walls in the brain

as we all get older, we are more likely to have atherosclerotic plaques on the walls of our blood vessels.

Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

I see

Fahr's syndrome is also called diopathic basal ganglia calcification and is a rare, genetically dominant, inherited neurological disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement.

There is currently no cure for Fahr's Syndrome nor a standard course of treatment. The available treatment is directed symptomatic control

There is no way to remove the calcium deposits from the brain from Fahr's syndrome.
