  • Stroke

    ), noninflammatory vasculopathy, Moyamoya disease and fibromuscular dysplasia.[en.wikipedia.org] Memory impairments are common after stroke, and the anatomical basis for impairments may be quite variable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Papanicolaou, AC, Levin, HS, Eisenberg, HM, Moore, BD, Goethe, KE, High, WM Evoked potential correlates of posttraumatic amnesia after closed head injury.[journals.sagepub.com]

    HZV vasculopathy may involve large vessels in immunocompetent patients, ranging from necrotizing granulomatous arteritis to chronic vasculitis and thrombosis of cerebral vessels[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com] Memory impairment in HZE was not as global or as severe as is described after encephalitis due to herpes simplex virus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leng NR, Parkin AJ (1988) Double dissociation of frontal dysfunction in organic amnesia. Br J Clin Psychol 27:359–362 CrossRef Google Scholar 30.[link.springer.com]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Delayed cerebral thrombosis may occur in patients with excellent recovery from pneumococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Depending on the region of the brain affected, a stroke can cause paralysis, loss of vision, speech impairment, memory loss and reasoning ability, coma, or death.[minddisorders.com] Our patient with unilateral ICV thrombosis also presented with mild clinical symptoms (headache, short-term amnesia, and discrete hemiparesis) and recovered completely in[ajnr.org]

  • Intracranial Hemorrhage

    Sickle cell disease Eclampsia or postpartum vasculopathy Infection Vasculitis Neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage Trauma In younger patients, vascular malformations, specifically[en.wikipedia.org] An older person with gradually developing symptoms, such as memory impairment and drowsiness, may be mistakenly thought to have dementia.[merckmanuals.com] He was found to have amnesia of the event and extensive facial bruising. His Glasgow Coma Scale score was 14 to 15 throughout observation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Angiitis

    However, there is little histological support for lupus cerebritis, and cerebral vasculitis in SLE is uncommon. Vasculopathy on the other hand is seen often in SLE.[rheumatologyadvisor.com] Its most common symptoms are as follows: Sudden vision loss Speech impairment Severe and persistent headaches Memory loss Confusion Problems in controlling bowel and bladder[primehealthchannel.com] […] hepatitis E, asthma-COPD overlap syndrome, drug-induced parenchymal lung disease, binge eating disorder, hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome, transient global amnesia[books.google.com]
