Ddx: -Fahr's disease. -Normal symmetric basal ganglia calcifications in the elderly. -Pathologic basal ganglia calcifications from endocrine or neuropsychiatric causes.

Dxhow: Through the imaging findings and lab tests to exclude endocrine causes.

Exam: PE - Vitals: stable. Gen: well developed - non toxic appearing female who appears older than her stated age. Neuro: Non focal with a mild resting tremor. Labs: Ca++ and P reported normal over the past three years
