1,836 Possible Causes for Agitated Delirium, Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Frontal Intermittent Rhythmic Delta Activity

  • Stroke

    In most cases, it occurs in a rhythmic and intermittent manner, and the most commonly and important types are frontal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (FIRDA) ( Fig 2[scielo.br] Frontal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (FIRDA) in pituitary adenoma. Clin Electroencephalogr 1995;26:173-179. [ Links ] 29.[scielo.br] ), occipital intermittent rhythmic delta activity (OIRDA) and temporal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (TIRDA) ( Fig 3 ).[scielo.br]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Subdural hematoma is defined as a collection of blood outside the brain below the dura mater. Presentations seen is dependent on the level of bleeding but general include siezures, apathy, weakness, lethargy, nausea, dizziness, behaviorual changes, confusion and severe headache. Chronic subdural hematoma may have[…][symptoma.com]
