The article offers information on intracranial calcifications and activating mutation of the calcium sensing receptor. Such conditions occur in patients diagnosed with asymptomatic hypocalcaemia. The disease was accompanied by low levels of intact parathyroid hormone, hydroxyvitamin and serum phosphorus which are of normal range. Gene study of the disease showed a novel activating mutation affecting the calcium-sensing receptor.

    Tumoral calcinosis is a rare familial disorder characterized by tumour like masses of calcification, usually in the soft tissues around large joints (para-articular). Masses of calcification sometimes cause gross deformity and disabilities requiring extensive surgical intervention. Involvement...
