Just "one of so many"? The pathologist Theodor Fahr (1877-1945) and his ambivalent relationship to National Socialism.

Pathol Res Pract 2021 Aug 23;224:153488. Epub 2021 May 23.

Institute for History, Theory and Ethics in Medicine, Medical Faculty, RWTH Aachen University, Wendlingweg 2, Aachen, D-52074, Germany. Electronic address:

Theodor Fahr is well known as a pioneer in renal pathology and the eponym of "Fahr's disease". While his professional merits are undisputed, his relationship to National Socialism remains unclear. On the one hand, he signed the public "oath of allegiance" of German professors to Adolf Hitler, on the other hand, he appeared as a mentor to his Jewish colleague Paul Kimmelstiel. Read More

Generation of induced pluripotent stem cell line (ZZUi0012-A) from a patient with Fahr's disease caused by a novel mutation in SLC20A2 gene.

Stem Cell Res 2019 03 28;35:101395. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Department of Neurology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou 450052, China. Electronic address:

Several SLC20A2 mutations have been implicated as potential causes of Fahr's disease, a subtype of primary familial brain calcification (PFBC), but very few patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) models have been established. We have identified a novel SLC20A2 mutation in a family with Fahr's disease. We subsequently obtained dermal fibroblasts from a patient in this family. Read More

Objective: To investigate the clinical, genetic, and neuroradiologic presentations of idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC) in a nationwide study in Japan.

Methods: We documented clinical and neuroimaging data of a total of 69 subjects including 23 subjects from 10 families and 46 subjects in sporadic cases of IBGC in Japan. Mutational analysis of SLC20A2 was performed. Read More

[Psychotic disorder induced by Fahr's syndrome: a case report].

Encephale 2014 Jun 28;40(3):271-5. Epub 2013 Jun 28.

Service de psychiatrie F, hôpital Razi, Manouba, Tunisie.

Unlabelled: Fahr's syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement, including the basal ganglia and the cerebral cortex associated with many neurological and psychiatric abnormalities such as a rigid hypokinetic syndrome, mood disorders and cognitive impairment. Fahr's syndrome is secondary to some disorders, such as hypoparathyroidism.

Case Report: We report the case of a 56 year-old man, with a history of cataract, who was admitted to our psychiatric hospital for the first time in his life because of psychotic symptoms associated with irritability and aggressiveness. Read More

Bilateral striopallidodentate calcinosis: cerebrospinal fluid, imaging, and electrophysiological studies.

Ann Neurol 1992 Apr;31(4):379-84

Division of Neurology, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Springfield 62794-9230.

We report the genetic, clinical, electrophysiological, and imaging studies in a family with bilateral striopallidodentate calcinosis (Fahr's disease). The intracerebral calcium deposits occurred before onset of the symptoms in the third decade of life. Progressive neurological deterioration occurred in the fifth decade of life in the proband.

[Familial case of Fahr's disease].

Zh Nevropatol Psikhiatr Im S S Korsakova 1988 ;88(3):64-8

The article describes two cases of a rare disorder of potassium metabolism (intracerebral calcinosis, or Fahr's disease) in a 39-year-old male and his 60-year-old mother. It is noteworthy that the diagnosis of Fahr's disease was made during life on the basis of the clinical picture and CT findings. The patients presented changes in the calcium-phosphorus metabolism (a reduction in blood levels of calcium in the presence of unchanged concentrations of parathyroid hormones). Read More
