Fahr's disease (FD) is a rare neurological disorder characterized by idiopathic bilateral basal ganglia calcification. It manifests as psychiatric, cognitive, and neurological manifestations. FD is distinct from Fahr's syndrome, in that the latter is having the symptoms generated by preexisting disease and abnormalities evident on blood investigations.
