9 Possible Causes for Calcified Falx Cerebri

  • Weismann Netter Syndrome

    Abstract Weismann-Netter syndrome (WNS), a rare condition, is characterized by an anterior curvature of the bones of the lower limbs, usually bilateral and symmetrical. It was first described in 1954 by Weismann-Netter and Stuhl. We report a 2-year-old girl with typical findings of WNS who was misdiagnosed as having[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rombo Syndrome

    Calcification of the falx cerebri and tentorium cerebelli is common, as well as calcification of the dura and the pia mater and the choroid plexus.[pocketdentistry.com] Reproductive system abnormalities can occur, such as bilateral calcifying ovarian fibromas or ovarian fibrosarcoma.[pocketdentistry.com]

  • Idiopathic Childhood-Onset Basal Ganglia Calcification

    Bilamellar calcification of the falx cerebri is a major diagnostic criterion, whereas macrocephaly and frontal bossing are minor diagnostic criteria (Kimonis et al. 1997).[rrnursingschool.biz] Among patients with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (Gorlin syndrome, OMIM 109400), lamellar calcification of the falx cerebri is found in 55-95 %, whereas the tentorium[rrnursingschool.biz] Calcification of the Falx or Tentorium.[rrnursingschool.biz]
