Gyriform calcification

Case contributed by Dr Saikat Sarkar


Seizures, delayed milestones.

Patient Data

Age: 2 years
Gender: Male

Single axial image through the brain, demonstrates gyral calcification involving the right frontal and parietal lobes with right-sided cerebral hemiatrophy and prominent extra-axial CSF space.

Case Discussion

Features are suggestive of Sturge-Weber syndrome, although other causes of cortical mineralisation (e.g. ischaemic insult) should also be considered.

Unfortunately no clinical correlation for presence of other stigmata of  Sturge-Weber syndrome was possible.
