It indicates healed stage of past infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

I have gone through the reports in detail.

Calcified granuloma in right thalamus is a benign finding and it is not related to your friend's headache.
Calcified granuloma indicates healed calcified stage of infection.He might had suffered some infection in the past and now it has completely healed.Healed stage is also indicated by no edema around the lesion.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.
