Brain calcification is a common neuroimaging feature in patients with metabolic, neurological, or developmental disorders, infectious diseases, traumatic or toxic history, as well as in otherwise normal older people. To understand the clinical and genetic characteristics of brain calcification, we establish a cohort of brain calcification to follow up patients with brain calcification.
