73 Possible Causes for Amnesia, Facial Grimacing, Seizure

  • Wilson Disease

    His WD was in a state of remission when he developed the seizure disorder. On endoscopic cyst fenestration, he was relieved of the seizure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with epileptic seizures were provided with seizure control medication (levetiracetam). Tremor did not need treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was initially treated for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and a seizure disorder until brain imaging established the diagnosis of Wilson disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    […] generalized seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Defining the phase of memory processing most relevant to this form of amnesia, and the roles of physiological and structural pathology, requires further research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lateral temporal lobe seizures may spread and motor features such as contralateral upper limb dystonia, facial twitching or grimacing, and head and eye version may occur.[epilepsydiagnosis.org]

  • Huntington's Disease

    We diagnosed psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (The so-called cortical dementias primarily involve the cerebral cortex and are associated with aphasia, agnosia, apraxia, and severe amnesia.)[emedicine.medscape.com] grimaces.[patient.info]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Therapy is often unnecessary and seizures spontaneously end at puberty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Postictal confusion and amnesia are unusual in benign rolandic epilepsy.[epilepsy.com] Awareness during RE seizures is generally unaltered, but retrograde amnesia has also been reported.[symptoma.com]

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

    Motor signs included grand mal seizures, generalized rigidity, localized dystonias, catalepsy, and athetosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The prevalent clinical signs and symptoms were the following: retrograde amnesia, nystagmus, hypertension, and psychomotor agitation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A patient with PCP intoxication may exhibit motor disturbances such as facial grimacing, tremor, and catalepsy.[theravive.com]

  • Limbic Encephalitis

    Five patients showed piloerection as principal seizure semiology (prevalence 0.65%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of limbic encephalitis in a 56-year-old man, revealed by anterograde amnesia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, he presented with facial grimacing and brief left upper limb dystonic posturing lasting 1–2 seconds, with hyponatremia that was difficult to rectify.[dovepress.com]

  • Japanese Encephalitis

    CONCLUSION: Seizure and behavioral abnormality are common features in HSE whereas focal reflex loss is commoner in JE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Figure 4 Facial grimacing in a Vietnamese boy with Japanese encephalitis. (T Solomon.)[doi.org] On the other hand, strong neurological symptoms such as seizure (5% vs. 73%, p   0.001) and altered consciousness (12% vs. 97%, p   0.001) were manifested primarily in the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    We report an 8-year-old girl with MELAS, presenting with a seizure and blindness. 1H-MRS showed a strikingly elevated lactate peak in the right occipital region, where no[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Noncerebrovascular Conditions Misdiagnosed as TIA GPs Emergency MDs Syncope 4 4 Convulsion 1 2 Transient global amnesia 1 2 Posttraumatic amnesia 1 1 Dementia 1 … Sedative[doi.org] Unknown No Symptoms present Yes Unknown No Not previously bedridden or wheelchair bound Yes Unknown No If unknown or yes Blood glucose 60 to 400 mg/dL Yes No Examination Facial[doi.org]

  • Paroxysmal Non-Kinesigenic Dyskinesia

    Some individuals may experience both PKD and seizures while others exhibit PKD or seizures only.[genedx.com] There was neither loss of consciousness nor postictal confusion or amnesia.[e-jmd.org] There was no axial muscle involvement, nor any oromandibular dystonia or facial grimacing.[neurologyindia.com]
