43 Possible Causes for Brain CT Scan showing Enlarged Ventricles, Multifocal Spikes and Progressive Slowing of Background Activity

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Abstract The aim of this controlled study was to evaluate the effects of a long-term program of formal didactic group therapy [class reality orientation therapy (ROT)] in Alzheimer disease. The study was conducted in the day hospital of an Alzheimer Dementia Research and Care Unit (Brescia, Italy), a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hydrocephalus

    A CT scan showed severe dilation of the brain’s lateral ventricles, while an MRI scan revealed massive enlargement of the lateral third and fourth venricles, a very thin cortical[sciencedaily.com] CT scans use several different X-rays to form a cross-sectional image of the brain. These scans can show enlarged brain ventricles that result from too much CSF.[healthline.com] Computerized tomography (CT) scans can also help diagnose hydrocephalus in children and adults.[healthline.com]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    Even in the chronic phase, an MRI may show shrunken mammillary bodies and other changes in the brain. CT scans have showed enlarged ventricles and diencephalic lesions.[caregiver.org]

  • Hypoglycemia

  • Hyponatremia

    Abstract Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), may be due to different causes. It may develop secondary to hypertension, renal decompensation, electrolyte imbalance, and chemotherapeutic drugs. We describe a case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia in which PRES developed secondary to hyponatremia[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    OBJECTIVE: Induced hypernatremia is frequently used to reduce intracranial pressure in patients with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). This technique is controversial, and some studies have independently associated hypernatremia with worse outcomes after TBI. We sought to investigate this potential association in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    BACKGROUND: Stroke is an important cause of death and disability worldwide. Since high blood pressure is an important risk factor for stroke and stroke recurrence, drugs that lower blood pressure might play an important role in secondary stroke prevention. OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether blood[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    BACKGROUND: Studies on electrophysiological characteristics of patients with epilepsy and concomitant psychosis are limited. We aimed to investigate the clinical and video-electroencephalography (EEG) findings of patients with epilepsy-related psychosis (EP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients diagnosed with EP,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    OBJECTIVE: Glucocorticoid excess is one of the most important causes of bone disorders. Bone marrow fat (BMF) has been identified as a l new mediator of bone metabolism. Cushing syndrome (CS), is a main regulator of adipose tissue distribution but its impact on BMF is unknown. The objective of the study was to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
