37 Possible Causes for Amnesia, Rapid Progression to Disability

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Our findings may reflect the presence of greater comorbidity leading to earlier death among men than among women with AD, 57 or a more rapid progression of AD in women. 58[dx.doi.org] Amnesia: A minimal model and an interpretation. In Cermak, L. S. (ed.), Human Memory and Amnesia, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Hillsdale, NJ, pp. 305–336.[oadoi.org] Eventually almost every domain of cognition will be dismantled, but amnesia remains at the heart of trying to discover the cause of the brain's degeneration.[theguardian.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

    Rapid recognition and response is essential to reduce the risk of disability and death. 4,8,10 As the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) points[journals.lww.com] 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] Vertebro-basilar artery syndrome G45.1 Carotid artery syndrome (hemispheric) G45.2 Multiple and bilateral precerebral artery syndromes G45.3 Amaurosis fugax G45.4 Transient global amnesia[icd10data.com]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Although progression is more rapid, age-related disability milestones are identical to relapsing-onset disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A previous analysis of the British Columbia MS database challenged the view that disability progression is rapid in PPMS, but identified few predictors of disease progression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , for which prognosis is considered as poor due to the relatively rapid development of advanced disability as compared with RRMS.[globenewswire.com]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    progression of disability, more frequent relapses, and worse postrelapse recoveries.[dx.doi.org] Transient global amnesia (TGA) is characterised by sudden onset of anterograde amnesia with repetitive questioning, lasting less than 24 hours.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Multiple Sclerosis have a higher incidence of spinal cord lesion and exhibit much more rapid development of disability than those with other forms of the disease 1 in every[themcfox.com]

  • Huntington's Disease

    First, the disease progresses more rapidly in homozygotes than in heterozygotes.[dx.doi.org] (The so-called cortical dementias primarily involve the cerebral cortex and are associated with aphasia, agnosia, apraxia, and severe amnesia.)[emedicine.medscape.com] More rapid deterioration was evident by measures of neurological function and functional independence.[dx.doi.org]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    The condition is hard to link to a specific symptom, although it is mistaken for CJD because of rapid progression of disability and its common involvement of visual pathways[doi.org] Besides amnesia and impaired attention (89% each), frontal lobe syndrome (75%), aphasia (63%), and apraxia (57%) were the most common neuropsychological deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In its extreme forms, memory loss is called amnesia. Treatment for traumatic brain injuries commonly includes medications, counseling, and/or occupational therapy.[dementiacarecentral.com]

  • Polyneuropathy

    For example, patients with GBS present with a definite date of onset followed by rapid progression of impairment and disability.[neurology.org] A 24-year-old woman who had recently served a 4-month prison sentence and underwent a short period of dieting manifested slow response, weakness, language disorder and amnesia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prompt thiamine supplement therapy was initiated and both patients gradually recovered, however mild amnesia was still noted 6 months later.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Puerperium

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome
