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[] Amnesia: A minimal model and an interpretation. In Cermak, L. S. (ed.), Human Memory and Amnesia, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Hillsdale, NJ, pp. 305–336.[] 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.[]

  • 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[] 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[] 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[]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Although progression is more rapid, age-related disability milestones are identical to relapsing-onset disease.[] 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[] , for which prognosis is considered as poor due to the relatively rapid development of advanced disability as compared with RRMS.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    progression of disability, more frequent relapses, and worse postrelapse recoveries.[] Transient global amnesia (TGA) is characterised by sudden onset of anterograde amnesia with repetitive questioning, lasting less than 24 hours.[] 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[]

  • Huntington's Disease

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

  • 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[] Besides amnesia and impaired attention (89% each), frontal lobe syndrome (75%), aphasia (63%), and apraxia (57%) were the most common neuropsychological deficits.[] In its extreme forms, memory loss is called amnesia. Treatment for traumatic brain injuries commonly includes medications, counseling, and/or occupational therapy.[]

  • Polyneuropathy

    For example, patients with GBS present with a definite date of onset followed by rapid progression of impairment and disability.[] 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[] Prompt thiamine supplement therapy was initiated and both patients gradually recovered, however mild amnesia was still noted 6 months later.[]

  • Puerperium

    Deterioration Scale (PDS), Interview for Deterioration in Daily Living Activities in Dementia (IDDD), Disability Assessment in Dementia Scale (DADS), Functional Assessment[] The crisis can be followed by amnesia, lethargy, headache, muscle pain and transient focal weakness [ 17 ].[] DeLong GR (1992) Autism, amnesia, hippocampus, and learning. Neurosci Biobehav Rev 16:63–70 CrossRef PubMed Google Scholar 16.[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    progression to severe disability and the absence of regeneration in a sural nerve biopsy.[] […] large variety of symptoms Specific findings Often paraneoplastic encephalomyelitis (PEM) Inflammatory loss of neurons in the limbic system, insular cortex, and brainstem Amnesia[] LE Patients with LE develop short-term memory loss or amnesia, disorientation, confusion, depression, anxiety, or frank psychosis with visual or auditory hallucinations or[]

  • Neurological Disorder

    , and smoking was associated with a more rapid decline in MS disability.[] , Boston, MA, USA delivered the first keynote lecture on “Brain Dynamics of Normal and Abnormal Learning, Memory, and Cognition with Applications to Alzheimer’s Disease, Amnesia[] […] recent past (retrograde amnesia).[]
