137 Possible Causes for Astrocytic Gliosis, Sudden Death

  • Globoid Cell Leukodystrophy

    ] a metabolic disorder of infancy or early childhood characterized by spasticity, seizures, and rapidly progressive cerebral degeneration, massive loss of myelin, severe astrocytic[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] The presence of numerous, often multinucleated, globoid cells, the almost total loss of myelin and oligodendroglia, and astrocytic gliosis in the white matter are the morphologic[mhmedical.com] gliosis through astrocytic PGD2 receptors (DP1).[emedicine.com]

  • Status Epilepticus

    Pathologic findings of the gyrus around the tumor revealed mild gliosis with proliferating astrocytes but no evidence of glioma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a frequent cause of non-accidental, non-suicidal sudden death in patients with epilepsy.[f1000research.com] Prognosis Status epilepticus is the second highest cause of mortality in Dravet syndrome patients, following sudden unexpected death in epilepsy ( SUDEP ). *** Dravet Syndrome[dravetsyndromenews.com]

  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

    SIUD cases (aged 25 to 30 gestational weeks) the main defects were: tanycytes only rarely present; atrophy of the cilia; and a low number of apoptotic cells and reactive astrocytes[doi.org] […] category) Crib death Sudden infant death syndrome[wikidata.org] […] cases (from 38 to 41 gestational weeks) we frequently observed: micro- or macro-areas of EP desquamation and/or discontinuity on the ventricular surface (Figure 6a ); marked gliosis[doi.org]

  • Cerebellar Hemorrhage

    Gliosis was defined as the occurrence of 11 or more reactive astrocytes with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and an eccentrically situated nucleus with delicate chromatin[actaneurocomms.biomedcentral.com] […] even sudden death. [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7] Here, we report the case of a child, whose first presentation of medulloblastoma was a fatal cerebellar hemorrhage and discuss[pediatricneurosciences.com] In rare cases, an acute intratumoral hemorrhage may be the initial presentation of medulloblastoma; this presentation can also lead to sudden neurological deterioration and[pediatricneurosciences.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Pathology Atrophy of the anterior horn cells and replacement of the large motor neurons by fibrous astrocytes (gliosis) causes the affected anterior and lateral columns of[aafp.org] Upper motor neurone pathology in ALS is indicated by depopulation of the Betz cells in the motor cortex (Brodmann area 4), variable astrocytic gliosis affecting both the grey[doi.org] Histopathological features The pathological hallmarks of ALS are the degeneration and loss of motor neurones with astrocytic gliosis and the presence of intraneuronal inclusions[doi.org]

  • Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy

    ; reactive gliosis Unusual astrocytes may cause confusion with glioma on biopsy Minimal inflammation Immunohistochemistry – JCV staining in oligodendroglial cells and astrocytes[arupconsult.com] Symptoms include sudden fever, severe headache, or confusion. Infection of the eye caused by herpes viruses leading to blindness in some patients has occurred.[tysabri.com] […] with enlarged astrocytes 13.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    GFAP immunohistochemistry evidenced astrocytic gliosis in the frontal, temporal and parahippocampic cortex.[doi.org] Sudden death was defined as death occurring suddenly and unexpectedly in a patient who was stable before the event. 21,22 Witnessed deaths were classified as sudden only if[nejm.org] We studied the association between CTG expansion size and other baseline characteristics and (1) cardiac involvement at baseline and (2) the incidence of death, sudden death[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    Astrocyte reactivity Evidence suggests that the BBB disruption contributes to astrocyte activation and gliosis.[doi.org] Ferraz, Sudden unexpected death in Parkinson's disease: Perspectives on what we have learned about sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), Epilepsy & Behavior, 10.1016[doi.org] KEYWORDS: Biomarkers; Epilepsy; Forensic preventative pathology; MiRNA; Sudden death[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    Marked neuronal loss and astrocytic gliosis were observed on histologic examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other research is aimed at identifying possible causes of sudden death related to heart muscle abnormalities, which are observed in some individuals with neuroacanthocytosis[brainfacts.org] Sudden, apparently unexplained death seems to occur quite frequently in ChAc.[tremorjournal.org]
