Abstract: Fahr’s disease is rare clinical entity characterized by symmetrical and bilateral intracranial calcification. It is usually reported in late adult and old age. We report a rare case of a 25 year old male presenting with seizures and cerebellar signs, with calcifications in bilateral basal ganglia and cerebellar hemispheres on computed tomography of the head, no biochemical or endocrinological abnormalities and no family history. His seizures responded well to antiepileptic but cerebellar features did not improve.
