  • Stroke

    ), noninflammatory vasculopathy, Moyamoya disease and fibromuscular dysplasia.[en.wikipedia.org] Memory impairments are common after stroke, and the anatomical basis for impairments may be quite variable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The first patient (female, 50 years old) had dysarthria, nystagmus and trunk ataxia on admission. Her blood alcohol level was 2.3‰.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Susac Syndrome

Gait was not assessed at that time.[the-rheumatologist.org]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Sickle cell disease Eclampsia or postpartum vasculopathy Infection Vasculitis Neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage Trauma In younger patients, vascular malformations, specifically[en.wikipedia.org] An older person with gradually developing symptoms, such as memory impairment and drowsiness, may be mistakenly thought to have dementia.[msdmanuals.com] There may be little or no evidence of the usual signs of cerevellar disease, & only a minority of cases show nystagmus or ataxia of the limbs.[enotes.tripod.com]

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    The terms cerebritis and vasculitis are well embedded in the literature and will be used in this article, keeping in mind the evolving understanding of the underlying processes[emedicine.medscape.com] Cognitive Dysfunction The most common manifestation of neuro-lupus is cognitive dysfunction, which is characterized by clouded thinking, confusion, and impaired memory.[hopkinslupus.org] […] report a 28-year-old patient with systemic lupus erythematosus who had persistent fever for 3 months, and developed within a few hours motor and sensory aphasia, rotator nystagmus[link.springer.com]

  • Intrapontine Hemorrhage

    Sickle cell disease Eclampsia or postpartum vasculopathy Infection Vasculitis Neonatal intraventricular hemorrhage Trauma In younger patients, vascular malformations, specifically[en.wikipedia.org] Memory and the ability to concentrate are impaired, although severe amnesia is unusual. Abnormalities of visual perception are nearly always detectable.[nejm.org] Horizontal pendular nystagmus emerged 7.4 months after the hemorrhage, primarily in the left eye.[burke.weill.cornell.edu]

  • Herpes Zoster

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Delayed cerebral thrombosis may occur in patients with excellent recovery from pneumococcal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Depending on the region of the brain affected, a stroke can cause paralysis, loss of vision, speech impairment, memory loss and reasoning ability, coma, or death.[minddisorders.com] […] or sensory deficit 34% Seizures 37% Drowsiness, mental changes,confusion, or coma 30% Dysphasia 12% Multiple cranial nerve palsies 12% Cerebellar incoordiantion 3% Nystagmus[slideshare.net]

  • Microangiopathy

    Cerebral angiography suggested vasculitis in the younger patient.[neurology.org] Symptoms associated with CM at admittance Of the symptoms associated with CM, progressive memory impairment was the most frequent (38.1%), followed by gait apraxia (27.8%)[journals.plos.org] Neurological examination disclosed jerky nystagmus in all directions of gaze and an extensor right plantar response.[jnnp.bmj.com]
