Non-progressive familial idiopathic intracranial calcification: a family report.
  1. J S Callender
  1. Royal Cornhill Hospital, Aberdeen, UK.


    The clinical features and long term outcome of familial idiopathic intracranial calcification in three members of one family are described. The illness presented as psychiatric disorder in all patients, and in one patient, epilepsy and intellectual deterioration were later manifestations. Skull radiographs and CT were performed sequentially, in one patient, over a 22 year period and, in another, CT was carried out eight years apart. In neither patient was there any evidence of progression of calcification.
