About spd calcinosis

What is spd calcinosis?

Familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (FIBGC) is a rare neurological disorder characterized by the presence of abnormal calcium deposits (calcifications) of unknown cause. Associated symptoms include progressive deterioration of cognitive abilities (dementia), loss of contact with reality (psychosis), mood swings and loss of acquired motor skills. As the condition progresses, paralysis may develop that is associated with increased muscle stiffness (rigidity) and restricted movements (spastic paralysis). Additional abnormalities may include relatively slow, involuntary, continual writhing movements (athetosis) or chorea, a related condition characterized by irregular, rapid, jerky movements.



What are the risk factors for spd calcinosis?

Striopallidodentate SPD calcinosis is a condition in which patches of calcium deposits form on the skin.

If you're like most people, you don't spend a lot of time thinking about your teeth. But if you have striopallidodentate calcinosis, that may change. Striopallidodentate calcinosis is a disease that causes three unusual symptoms: teeth that are unusually white, spots on the teeth that look like calcium deposits, and a burning sensation in your mouth when you eat certain foods.

The deposits are usually found on the upper back, neck, shoulders and upper arms. They can also be found on the face and neck. In many cases, these deposits will cause itching or irritation of the skin.

This condition often goes away on its own after several months or years. However, if you have striopallidodentate calcinosis and are experiencing itching or irritation of your skin, talk to your doctor about treatment options that may help relieve your symptoms.

The good news is that striopallidodentate calcinosis isn't dangerous or life-threatening—it just needs to be treated so that it doesn't cause pain or discomfort.

There are four risk factors for striopallidodentate calcinosis:

1. Family history of striopallidodentate calcinosis (if your parents have it, you are more likely to develop the condition)

2. Hereditary connective tissue disorders, such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Marfan syndrome

3. Diabetes mellitus (a condition that can cause high blood sugar levels)

4. Hyperparathyroidism (an overactive parathyroid gland)
