985 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Coma

  • Stroke

    Sutter R, Kaplan PW (2012) Electroencephalographic patterns in coma: when things slow down. Epileptologie 29: 201–209. 27.[aimspress.com] Ischemic stroke with coma Ischemic stroke without coma Ischemic stroke wo coma Lacunar infarction Lacunar stroke Left anterior cerebral artery occlusion w stroke Left anterior[icd9data.com] […] following: breathing and heart functions body temperature control balance and coordination weakness or paralysis in all four limbs chewing, swallowing, and speaking vision coma[web.archive.org]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Alpha-frequency coma (AC) is a rare finding in comatose patients and is generally associated with a poor prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) studies disclosed mononuclear pleocytosis with elevated protein levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One hour after admission, his Glasgow Coma Scale fell from 14 to 11. We performed an echo-guided stereotaxic removal of the hematoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    Low Glasgow Coma Scale at admission was significantly associated with worse neurological outcome (P[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fluid abnormalities.[dx.doi.org] Sequelae were asociated with coma, alterations in CT scan, seizures and hypoglycorrhachia.[analesdepediatria.org]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    The administration of midodrine relieved the hypotension, and postprandial coma was no longer observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for SAH; CT negative for SAH and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The objective of this study is to compare the predictive values of simplified acute physiology score (SAPS) 3, sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA), and Glasgow Coma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Postoperative data obtained included Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS), and follow-up period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Possible complications include: Brain herniation (severe pressure on the brain that causes coma or death) Permanent brain damage Persistent symptoms or seizures If symptoms[sharecare.com] On postoperative day 4, the patient was noted to be unconscious with Glasgow Coma Scale score of 10 (E2V3M5).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    This case report describes a 59-year-old male who presented with headaches, seizures and hypertension followed by coma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both computerized tomography of the head and cerebrospinal fluid examination were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (hepatic coma), psychiatric changes of varying degree, flapping tremor, and fetor hepaticus.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Postinfectious Encephalomyelitis

    […] symptoms of ADEM appear rapidly, beginning with encephalitis-like symptoms such as fever, fatigue, headache, nausea and vomiting, and in the most severe cases, seizures and coma[malacards.org] In a situation where nonspecific cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities and MRI evidence of white matter lesions are present, it is important that other inflammatory demyelinating[myelitis.org] Lumbar puncture The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by a clear liquid called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).[brainandspine.org.uk]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Five of 15 variables tested were strongly associated with poor outcome (CSF culture positivity, CSF white blood cell count, hemoglobin, Glasgow Coma Scale, and pulse rate)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After medication with meropenem was started, the clinical symptoms completely disappeared, and the abnormalities on cerebrospinal fluid examination resolved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The central nervous system effects can be very mild and produce symptoms no worse than a headache, or they can be very severe and result in coma or death.[health.utah.gov]

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    Assessment of serum electrolytes is essential in patients presenting with confusion or coma to exclude electrolyte imbalance as the underlying etiology.[symptoma.com] Investigations Physical examination, fundoscopic examination, laboratory tests for metabolic abnormalities, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, microbiology and serologic testing[nature.com] Figure 2 Relationship between cerebrospinal fluid IL-6 and abnormal MRI findings in diffuse neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus.[lupus.bmj.com]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    […] manifestations of fat embolism syndrome can be highly variable and non-specific: the symptoms spectrum includes headache, lethargy, irritability, delirium, stupor, convulsions, or coma[radiopaedia.org] Her blood pressure was 88/55 mmHg and she had a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score of E1V1M4; she presented no nuchal rigidity.[scielo.br]
