CT demonstration of cerebral subcortical calcifications.


Neurological abnormalities are a major cause of the morbidity associated with renal failure. Substantial elevations in parathormone levels have been found to accompany significant increases in brain content of calcium. Two cases of cerebral subcortical calcifications are demonstrated by computed tomography in patients with severe chronic renal failure. To our knowledge this finding has not been described previously.
