Abstract

In a patient with celiac disease, folate and iron deficiency, and epilepsy, CT over a 4-month period showed parietoocipital calcifications in the corticomedullary junctions. The calcification was progressive, but it and the seizures stabilized after institution of a gluten-free diet and iron and folic acid supplements.
