Cerebellar calcification and lead.
  1. M D Benson,
  2. J Price

    Abstract

    In elderly subjects who were brought up in a known high lead environment in Queensland, Australia, childhood residence and occupational status provide circumstantial evidence of a relationship between excessive lead intake and cerebellar calcification as seen on computed tomography. This supports experimental and neuropathological studies demonstrating an association between exposure to lead and perivascular cerebellar calcification.
