Familial idiopathic brain calcification (FIBC) is a rare disorder characterised by autosomal dominant transmission, adult onset cerebellar and/or extrapyramidal features and idiopathic calcification of the brain. We present a family with FIBC where pathological studies showed that the proband had alpha-synuclein-immunopositive glial and neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions in oligodendrocytes in the putamen, midbrain and pons. This may represent a new and familial alpha-synuclein disorder causing a predominantly extrapyramidal picture similar to multisystem atrophy.
