1,555 Possible Causes for Central Focal Spikes, Lower and Upper Limbs Affected, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    , multifocal, or bilateral distribution and time locked to sharp-wave or spike-wave discharges on the contralateral central areas. 34, 35 ENM has a wide etiological spectrum[] By the jerk-locked averaging method, a positive spike time-locked to the myoclonic jerk was demonstrated in four patients before 15-20 msec of myoclonic jerk.[] Attacks may last several minutes to half an hour and more frequently affect the lower than upper limbs.[]

  • Epilepsy

    In infancy, the EEG background was normal (1), showed diffuse (3) or focal slowing that was temporal (1) and in the left hemisphere (1), and showed focal (central, temporal[] So the jerks were considered as cortical origin and generalized myoclonic seizure was confirmed.[] People with JME can have absence seizures, myoclonic (muscle-jerking) seizures, and generalized tonic-clonic seizures.[]

They are usually mild and are freqently restricted to the upper extremities.[] All of these patients were contacted and asked specifically about myoclonic jerks.[] Myoclonic jerks or seizures Myoclonic jerks or seizures without impairment of consciousness are the cardinal symptoms of JME.[]

    Both patients had early infantile seizures characterized by fragmentary myoclonic jerks associated with burst-suppression pattern on electroencephalography.[] Early Myoclonic Encephalopathy starts in the first 10 days of an infant’s life with erratic small jerks (i.e. myoclonic seizures).[] […] epileptic encephalopathy which began between two days and ten weeks of life. at onset it is associated with: myoclonic jerks, partial fits and periodic paroxysmal EEG abnormalities[]

    The patient presented with segmental myoclonic jerks at the age of 6 weeks, and infantile spasms at the age of 3.5 months. Her seizures were resistant to treatment.[] jerks of the upper limbs, mainly on awakening, synchronous with the generalized discharges of 4 Hz spike-wave occurring at 12 years of age and by co-occurrence of a later[] Initially, he had refractory convulsions of focal, generalised, and myoclonic jerks, not responding to multiple anticonvulsants. He also had choreoathetoid movements.[]
