Fahr’s Syndrome is a rare, genetically inherited neurological disorder that is characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement, including the basal ganglia and the cerebral cortex. I represent a 40 year old former IRS representative with Fahr’s Syndrome whose Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application was approved today after the ALJ found that listing 11.06 was met.
Because Fahr’s Syndrome is rare, I submitted medical treatise information from the Internet describing the condition, including its symptoms. During the hearing, the medical expert (“ME”) stated that he found the information very helpful, and testified that the claimant’s condition was like Parkinsonian syndrome, and its severity met listing 11.06. The ALJ agreed and issued a fully favorable decision today.
Claimants with rare medical conditions are frequently denied SSD benefits because their impairments are misunderstood. A SSD attorney should always submit reliably sourced medical information regarding unusual medical impairments, especially one that describes the common symptoms.
