80 Possible Causes for Calcification of the Falx

  • Gorlin Syndrome

    […] of the falx cerebri.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical examination revealed multiple nevi, palmar and plantar pits, jaw cysts, and calcification of the falx cerebri, leading to the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include calcification of the falx cerebri and tentorium cerebelli and dysgenesis of the corpus callosum and vermis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Papillon Lefevre Disease

    Radiographs of the skull showed bilateral calcifications in the falx cerebri, documenting the full-blown Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome.[jamanetwork.com] […] of falx cerebri.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] […] of the falx cerebri; autosomal recessive inheritance.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma

    The clinical manifestations of NBCCS include multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), odontogenic keratocysts, palmar or plantar pits, and calcification of the falx cerebri.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of falx cerebri, and a history of surgery for odontogenic keratocyst.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the falx cerebri (in the center line of the brain) and rib abnormalities.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Brachyolmia

    This type may be associated with precocious calcification of the falx cerebri, and minor facial anomalies. 3.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Maroteaux brachyolmia may also be associated with precocious calcification of the falx cerebri, and minor facial anomalies (summary by Shohat et al., 1989).[malacards.org] Some cases are associated with precocious calcification of the falx cerebri.[diseaseinfosearch.org]

  • Neonatal Intracranial Hemorrhage

    Although the calcification of the falx is rarely seen in the newborn period, the falx image does not always mean the subarachnoid hemorrhage.[jstage.jst.go.jp] From these data, it was concluded that the falx image on the computed tomographic brain scanning was of diagnostic value on subarachnoid hemorrhage of the newborn.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Rombo Syndrome

    Bilamellar calcification of the falx cerebri. Bifid, fused, or markedly splayed ribs. First-degree relative with NBCCS.[eyewiki.aao.org] […] of falx cerebri, agenesis of corpus callosum, medulloblastoma, mental retardation (less common) Eyes Hypertelorism, congenital blindness, cataracts, colobomas, strabismus[cram.com] Radiograph of skull and vertebrae showed calcification of falx cerebri (Fig 1c) and mild scoliosis.[edoj.org.eg]

  • Skin Cancer

    […] of the falx cerebri (in the center line of the brain) and rib abnormalities.[en.wikipedia.org] […] of basal-cell nevus syndrome , or Gorlin Syndrome, which is also characterized by keratocystic odontogenic tumors of the jaw, palmar or plantar (sole of the foot) pits, calcification[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Intracranial Hemorrhage

    Although the calcification of the falx is rarely seen in the newborn period, the falx image does not always mean the subarachnoid hemorrhage.[ci.nii.ac.jp] From these data, it was concluded that the falx image on the computed tomographic brain scanning was of diagnostic value on subarachnoid hemorrhage of the newborn.[ci.nii.ac.jp]

  • Hypertelorism

    Associations with increased interorbital distance are also discussed: orofacial clefting, nonprotruding lipomas of the corpus callosum, calcification of the falx cerebri,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Kyphoscoliosis

    Skeletal abnormalities: bifid ribs, kyphoscoliosis , early calcification of falx cerebri (diagnosed with AP radiograph) Coffin-Lowry syndrome; severe mental retardation sometimes[diki.pl]
