312 Possible Causes for Atonic Seizures

  • Febrile Convulsions

    They may include febrile seizures (febrile convulsions); febrile seizures plus; tonic-clonic seizures; absence seizures; myoclonic seizures; atonic seizures (drop attacks)[epilepsy.org.uk] Generalized clonic seizures are most typical, but tonic and even atonic fits have also been observed.[symptoma.com] Other names for generalised epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS ) Genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus Symptoms The seizure types in this syndrome vary from person[epilepsy.org.uk]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    It is characterized by seizures of many different types, most often myoclonic - atonic, astatic, or generalized tonic-clonic seizures.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] RESULTS: Records of 6 children with MAE, who were experiencing 2-8 atonic seizures daily before starting TPM were studied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] seizures associated with runs of generalized spike-and-wave complexes in four patients, and myoclonic-atonic seizures in the remaining two patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Epilepsy with Febrile Seizures Plus

    In about one third, additional seizure types occur, such as absences, myoclonic, or atonic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other phenotypes included FS and absences, FS and myoclonic seizures, FS and atonic seizures, and the most severely affected individual had myoclonic-astatic epilepsy (MAE[doi.org] The others presented with different combinations of GTCS, tonic seizures, atonic seizures, and absences, only in part associated with fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    Postoperatively, the atonic seizures were completely eliminated and their mental reactivities remarkably improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The frequency of atonic seizures, rather than that of all seizures, was chosen as the primary end point.[doi.org] Division of the anterior half of the corpus callosum was performed in two patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome incapacitated by frequent atonic seizures leading to sudden[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Background: Primary generalized tonic-clonic seizures are one of a number of generalized seizure types which also includes absence, myoclonic and atonic seizures.[cochrane.org] They may start in the same part of the brain as an atonic seizure, and some people have both myoclonic and atonic seizures.[webmd.com] Continued Atonic seizures: Your muscles suddenly go limp, and your head may lean forward.[webmd.com]

  • Brain Stem Disorder

  • Generalized Motor Seizure

    They may start in the same part of the brain as an atonic seizure, and some people have both myoclonic and atonic seizures.[webmd.com] Atonic Seizure During an atonic seizure, muscles suddenly lose tone (or “strength”) due to temporary changes in brain function.[efmny.org] Atonic seizures (also called drop attacks) With atonic seizures, there is a sudden loss of muscle tone and the child may fall from a standing position or suddenly drop his[chp.edu]

  • Absence Seizure

    The classic epilepsy syndrome with atypical absence seizures is Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, characterised by multiple seizure types (severe tonic seizures, myoclonic-atonic seizures[bestpractice.bmj.com] (atonic seizures).[medlineplus.gov] They may occur with other types of seizures, such as generalized tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal seizures), twitches or jerks ( myoclonus ), or sudden loss of muscle strength[medlineplus.gov]
