105 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis, Seizure

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    More than a third of them sustains seizures, with generalized seizures occurring more frequently than focal seizures. Many patients present with hemiparesis.[symptoma.com] Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) does not necessarily help in establishing the diagnosis as there are no pathognomonic features.[pmj.bmj.com] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[medlink.com]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Seizures, focal or generalized, may be the earliest expression of a brain tumor.[emedicine.medscape.com] 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]

  • Brain Abscess

    We report the case of a 43-year-old man who first presented with a seizure and an altered level of consciousness 5 months after halo-vest placement for an odontoid fracture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Postictal cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in children. J Pediatr. 2001 Mar; 138(3): 373-377 Catherine Haberland; Percy Craig.[new.medigraphic.com] The patient was a 60-year-old man admitted for a seizure and administered an anticonvulsant, after which he began stuttering.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    Mortality and residual disability are relevant in patients presenting with intracranial hemorrhage or with epileptic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In our study, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) mostly showed abnormal composition and elevation of the intracranial pressure.[panafrican-med-journal.com] Cerebral vein thrombosis, also called superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, is a well recognized clinical and radiologic entity associated with a variety of medical disorders[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    RESULTS: We identified 8233 patients with HE, 191 091 with seizure, and 308 680 with transient ischemic attack.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both computerized tomography of the head and cerebrospinal fluid examination were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sinus thrombosis hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy SMART syndrome Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org]

  • Stroke

    Twenty patients (40%) had a single seizure, and most seizures (34, or 68%) were simple partial seizures or partial seizures with 2 generalization.[doi.org] Superior sagittal sinus and cerebral cortical venous thrombosis caused by congenital protein C deficiency: case report. Neurol Med Chir. 2000 ; 40 : 645–649.[doi.org] We report an event in which a seizure and stroke occurred together and consider that the stroke may have been caused by seizure-induced demand ischaemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    None of the patients with epilepsy after discharge had electrographic seizures while hospitalized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for SAH; CT negative for SAH and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] with recanalization of the cortical vein but a patent superior sagittal sinus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Exclusion criteria History of pre‐existing seizures.[doi.org] […] vein and sigmoid sinus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures often occur at the time the hematoma forms, or up to months or years after treatment. But medicines can help control the seizures.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    Age, seizures and shock signs were independently associated with mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early complications of bacterial meningitis include seizures, raised intracranial pressure (seen in the image below), cerebral venous thrombosis, sagittal sinus thrombosis[emedicine.medscape.com] sinus thrombosis, and hydrocephalus.[patient.info]

  • Cerebral Malaria

    Few days later she became drowsy and developed recurrent seizures and marked phobic spasms which prompted the treating physician to diagnose human rabies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Brain swelling was defined as loss of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) space, small ventricles, absence of sulci, and/or compression of the perimesencephalic and chiasmatic cisterns[cid.oxfordjournals.org] We report the first case of cerebral malaria due to Plasmodium vivax in Latin America, complicated with sagittal sinus thrombosis and confirmed by a molecular method.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
