Abstract

Background: Bilateral striopallidodentate calcinosis (BSPDC) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder characterized by abnormal calcium accumulation in the basal ganglia, dentate nucleus, and semioval center. Speech, voice, and swallowing abnormalities can be associated with the disease. However, there are a limited number of studies regarding the speech and swallowing characteristics of this disease in the literature. Lee-Silverman voice therapy (LSVT-LOUD) is a structured speech therapy method that can be used to treat neurogenic conditions.
