132 Possible Causes for Agitated Delirium, Hemiparesis, Poor Outcome

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A 73-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital for sudden headache and subsequent left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] poor outcome of patient with aSAH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] often called a “thunderclap headache”), nausea, confusion, altered consciousness, seizure, visual disturbances, cardiac arrhythmias, and focal neurological deficits such as hemiparesis[link.springer.com]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our case had a poor outcome, unlike the majority of previously reported cases. Copyright 2018 National Stroke Association. Published by Elsevier Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Serum S100 has been associated with poor outcome after SAH [ 29 ].[karger.com]

  • Marchiafava Bignami Disease

    […] mimicking conditions were differentiated from MBD by the occurrence of solitary and rapidly disappearing splenial lesions; fewer signs and symptoms with exception of seizures, hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] According to MOSH, 4 patients were placed in the poor outcome subgroup (MOHS   3), 5 patients were placed in the favorable outcome subgroup (MOHS   2).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some present with psychiatric disturbances like dementia, others with more or less severe neurologic impairment, like gait disturbances, seizures, hemiparesis or tetraparesis[symptoma.com]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Meningitis may be localized for a time to one hemisphere or the other, cause jacksonian convulsions, hemiparesis, or even hemianopia.[atsu.edu] Five of 15 variables tested were strongly associated with poor outcome (CSF culture positivity, CSF white blood cell count, hemoglobin, Glasgow Coma Scale, and pulse rate)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Later symptoms may include hydrocephalus (accumulation of fluid in the brain cavity), paralysis of one side of the body (hemiparesis), hearing loss, or other neurological[rarediseases.org]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    An 81-year-old man, presenting with left hemiparesis, underwent craniotomy for right organized CSH after 2 burr-hole surgeries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recurrent cases presented a poor outcome (P 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] present the case of a male patient diagnosed with stage IV prostate adenocarcinoma with bone metastasis, who is admitted for left hemisphere subdural hematoma with right hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Despite chemotherapy, the lesion increased in volume, which led to local pain and right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] They are responsible for rapidly declining neurological status and eventual poor outcome in many patients with LM.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors describe a 52-year-old man with a history of a subtotally resected right maxillary sinus ethesioneuro-epithelioma 2 years earlier who presented with a left hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

    In patient 2, delirium and temporal disorientation out of proportion with the septic state pointed towards encephalitis rather than meningitis.[virologyj.biomedcentral.com] She recovered and could speak short sentences, but dysphasia and right hemiparesis remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For the analysis of prognostic factors, outcome at 6 months was the main end point and was considered to be binary (favorable outcome vs. poor outcome).[cid.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    After 7 to 19 days, patients suddenly deteriorated, developing headache, fever, a decreased level of consciousness, brainstem signs, or hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Variable outcome was classified into good or poor (neurological handicap or death).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No significant differences were identified for hospital course or outcome, with the exception that a greater proportion of patients had subdural empyema and hemiparesis in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoglycemic Encephalopathy

    The individual findings that cause a clinician to refer to a person as having encephalopathy include intellectual disability, irritability, agitation, delirium, confusion,[en.wikipedia.org] Patients with good clinical outcome These patients (n 24) presented with coma (13 patients), acute hemiparesis and somnolence (9 patients) or acute hemiparesis followed by[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com] […] and poor outcomes (GOS 4).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    The authors describe three young women with systemic lupus erythematosus and hemiparesis who had major cerebral artery stenosis or occlusion documened by angiography.[glosbe.com] SLE can be fatal with nephritis, in particular, predicting a poor outcome for patients.[experts.umich.edu] Taddio et al concluded that presence of atypical manifestations of pediatric SLE at presentation and early kidney disease correlated with poor outcome.[emedicine.medscape.com]
