1,833 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Frontal Intermittent Rhythmic Delta Activity, Unilateral Ptosis

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) studies disclosed mononuclear pleocytosis with elevated protein levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Results of a polymerase chain reaction assay of the cerebrospinal fluid were positive for HSV-1. His course was complicated by 2 episodes of cerebral hemorrhage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treatment Treatment includes surgically measuring and correcting pressure on the brain by inserting a tube and draining excess blood and the cerebrospinal fluid that normally[neurosurgery.ucla.edu]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    […] for SAH; CT negative for SAH and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fluid or xanthochromia in any tube of cerebrospinal fluid collected considered abnormal.[bmj.com] Hydrocephalus General information: Acute hydrocephalus, an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, occurs in 15 percent of patients with SAH.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    A 28-year-old healthy man was admitted to our hospital because of right-sided headache, vomiting, and lower back pain after the administration of vardenafil. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed a small, right-sided, subdural hematoma. A lumbar magnetic resonance imaging showed a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    For example, blood and cerebrospinal fluid may also be tested to check for substances secreted by tumors (called tumor markers) and for gene abnormalities that are characteristic[merckmanuals.com] 3 months; new parictal lesion. deficits and with mass effect abnormalities; Dx: MS BAEP Brain stem auditory evoked potential, CC corpus callosum, CSF cerebrospinal fluid,[thefreelibrary.com] They begin in the ependymal cells that line the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain, where cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is manufactured.[encyclopedia.com]

  • Stroke

    In most cases, it occurs in a rhythmic and intermittent manner, and the most commonly and important types are frontal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (FIRDA) ( Fig 2[scielo.br] Frontal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (FIRDA) in pituitary adenoma. Clin Electroencephalogr 1995;26:173-179. [ Links ] 29.[scielo.br] ), occipital intermittent rhythmic delta activity (OIRDA) and temporal intermittent rhythmic delta activity (TIRDA) ( Fig 3 ).[scielo.br]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) does not necessarily help in establishing the diagnosis as there are no pathognomonic features.[pmj.bmj.com] Lumbar Puncture Unless there is clinical suspicion of meningitis, examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is typically not helpful in cases with focal neurological abnormalities[stroke.ahajournals.org] Abnormalities are found in up to 84% of cases and include raised CSF pressure, increased protein content, the presence of red blood cells and pleocytosis. 5 Nevertheless,[pmj.bmj.com]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We report a 49-year-old woman with a history of progressive gait disturbance, white matter disease, and cerebrospinal fluid immunoglobulin abnormalities who met criteria for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A history of exacerbation and remission of symptoms and the presence of greater than normal amounts of protein in cerebrospinal fluid are characteristic.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

Bilateral hyporeflexia was detected throughout the patient's body.[jaoa.org] […] findings from neurophysiological studies elevated protein in cerebrospinal fluid, without a significant increase in white cells relatively symmetrical weakness mild sensory[gov.uk]

  • Syringomyelia

    To the Editor: Syringomyelia is a condition with various causes in which fluid accumulates in an abnormal cavity within the spinal cord.[nejm.org] Syringomyelia is the result of an abnormal circulation in the CSFM (cerebrospinal fluid). An important gene often associated with this disorder is ACY1 (aminoacylase 1).[raregenomics.org] The aetiopathogenesis of syrinx formation is not fully elucidated but is suggested to be due to an interaction between abnormal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) hydrodynamics and[academic.oup.com]

She received five days of intravenous methylprednisolone.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in the brain Lumbar puncture or spinal tap to determine if there are abnormalities in the cerebrospinal fluid, one of the signs of MS Evoked potentials test, which records[ucsfhealth.org] […] urine tests to help rule out other possible disorders Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) to measure electrical activity in the heart Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to look for abnormalities[ucsfhealth.org]
