18 Possible Causes for Burr Cell, Generalized Motor Seizure

  • Preeclampsia

    […] hemodilution of pregnancy Peripheral smear (schistocytes, burr cells, echinocytes) Increased bilirubin ( 1.2 mg/dL) Thrombocytopenia ( 100,000) due to hemolysis and low platelet[emedicine.com] Eclampsia is the occurrence of generalized motor seizures (grand mal seizures) in pregnant women with PE that are not caused by coincident neurological disease and may occur[scielo.br] Alternatively, values that are three standard deviations away from the mean for each laboratory value may be used for AST. [45] Histology The presence of schistocytes, burr[emedicine.com]

  • HELLP Syndrome

    Burr cells Schistocytes Reticulocyte count – consider to evaluate for presence of hemolysis Liver enzymes AST – 2 times the upper reference limit meets criteria LDH – markedly[arupconsult.com] Laboratory studies should include: Complete blood cell (CBC) count Coagulation studies Peripheral smear for schistocytes, helmet cells, burr cells Liver function tests: serum[symptoma.com] The classic findings of microangiopathic hemolysis include abnormal peripheral smear (schistocytes, burr cells, echinocytes), elevated serum bilirubin (indirect form), low[womenshealthsection.com]

  • Temporal Lobe Tumor

    A probe is inserted to the tumor through a burr hole in the skull. The laser catheter is guided with real-time MRI.[mayfieldclinic.com] General symptoms include: Headaches, which may be severe and worsen with activity or in the early morning Seizures.[cancer.net] Radiation damages the DNA inside cells, making them unable to divide and grow. The benefits of radiation are not immediate but occur with time.[mayfieldclinic.com]

  • Eclampsia

  • Brain Abscess

    Frontal burr hole and evacuation of abscess was done. Thick brown pus of approximately 50 mL was drained.[casereports.in] On microscopy, gram stain showed numerous pus cells but no organisms. Aerobic culture grew Streptococcus spp.[casereports.in]

  • Uremia

    Some cases of uremia have also been associated with abnormal red blood cells, such as echinocytes, which are often better known as burr cells.[microscopyu.com] Usually the seizures caused by uncomplicated uremia are generalized, but focal motor seizures and epilepsia partialis continua occur 11.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Essential Tremor

    During focused ultrasound therapy, target cells in the thalamus are visualized in real time using MR imaging.[fusfoundation.org] […] hemorrhage, subdural hemorrhage, microthalamotomy effect, lead dislodgement, ischemic changes, generalized motor seizures, decreased verbal fluency) N/A Unilateral versus[aafp.org] However, other side effects included dysarthria, imbalance, paresthesias, weakness, ischemic changes, and generalized motor seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    Levine described 21 members of a family with a dominantly inherited neurologic disorder and acanthocytes, though some were noted to have the histologically distinct Burr cells[medlink.com] CNS manifestations resemble Huntington’s disease, and comprise a choreatic movement disorder, neuropsychiatric abnormalities, and generalized epileptic seizures.[research-projects.uzh.ch] […] ophthalmologist Abraham Kornzweig to identify and describe causes and symptoms of the disease. [17] Characteristics of the syndrome includes the presence of acanthocytes (burr-cell[wikidoc.org]

  • Steatorrhea

    Red blood cells have a peculiar burr-like morphology that has led to the designation 'acanthocytes'. Liver failure and cirrhosis sometimes occur.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Vitamin malabsorption can cause generalized motor weakness (vitamin B5/pantothenic acid, vitamin D) or peripheral neuropathy (vitamin B1/thiamine), a sense of loss for vibration[emedicine.medscape.com] […] and position (vitamin B12/cobalamin), night blindness (vitamin A), and seizures (vitamin B7/biotin).[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

    Biochem Cell Biol. 2010; 88 (2):157–65. o09-124 [pii] 10.1139/o09-124. [ PubMed ] 23. Sharma M, Burre J, Sudhof TC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The onset of illness was marked by seizures occurring as generalized tonic-clonic seizures and myoclonic jerks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At the age of five, tremor, generalized ataxia, and motor and mental regression appeared. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed cerebellar atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
