27 Possible Causes for 3-4 Hz Spikes, Hypomyelination, Polyspike-and-Slow-Waves

  • West Syndrome

    All patients had striking hypomyelination of cerebrum, reduced volume of white matter and cortical atrophy on MRI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Interictal The background EEG is often highly disorganized with high voltage irregular slow waves intermixed with multifocal spikes and polyspikes, this is termed 'hypsarrhythmia[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed diffusely reduced white matter and brainstem volumes with hypomyelination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Neonatal onset Apraxia Postural instability Cerebral hypomyelination Olivopontocerebellar atrophy Pruritus Muscle fibrillation Headache Amaurosis fugax Involuntary movements[mendelian.co] . • Ictal EEG consists of “Fast activity” (10 Hz or more) and slow waves, with an occasional spike-and-wave pattern. • The EEG interictal expression is of “spike-and-wave[medlink.com] The EEG shows generalised spike and wave discharges of 3 to 4 Hz and some with photic sensitivity. This is potentially a lifelong epilepsy.[pennsw.com.au]
