INTRODUCTION: Fahr's syndrome is characterized by symmetrical and bilateral intracerebral calcifications, located in the basal ganglia and mostly associated with a phosphorus calcium metabolism disorder. It must be distinguished from genetic or sporadic Fahr's disease.
OBSERVATIONS: We report two cases of this syndrome, the first was revealed by psychotic and cognitive disorders and the other by epilepsy. In both cases, brain imaging and biology resulted in the diagnosis of Fahr's syndrome. The outcome was favorable after treatment in both cases.
CONCLUSION: These two observations illustrate various clinical signs of Fahr's syndrome.
