27 Possible Causes for Continuous Rhythmic Slowing, EEG Generalized Slowing

  • Hypoglycemia

    Intern Med. 2016;55(8):949-53. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.55.5737. Epub 2016 Apr 15. Author information 1 Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Dokkyo Medical University, Japan. Abstract We encountered a 62-year-old woman who experienced frequent episodes of hypoglycemia. She was diagnosed with postprandial[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    CONCLUSIONS: Abnormal EEG in general and generalized slowing in particular are associated with clinical deterioration after acute ischemic stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Background The background EEG may be normal or show focal slowing over the location of the stroke.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Gloor et al. 16, investigated the location of structural pathology that produced localized, lateralized or generalized EEG slow activity.[scielo.br]

  • Hyponatremia

    OBJECTIVES: To assess symptoms and characteristics of hyponatremia, the most common electrolyte disturbance in hospitalized individuals and a condition that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. DESIGN: Prospective observational multicenter study. SETTING: Two Swiss academic centers. PARTICIPANTS:[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    , A M Saunders, D Schmechel, M Pericak-Vance, J Enghild, G S Salvesen, and A D Roses Abstract Apolipoprotein E is immunochemically localized to the senile plaques, vascular amyloid, and neurofibrillary tangles of Alzheimer disease. In vitro, apolipoprotein E in cerebrospinal fluid binds to synthetic beta A4 peptide (the[…][doi.org]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Critical Care Medicine. 45(4):575–583, APR 2017 DOI: 10.1097/CCM.0000000000002205, PMID: 27941370 Issn Print: 0090-3493 Publication Date: 2017/04/01 Checking for direct PDF access through Ovid Abstract Therapeutic hypothermia has been used to attenuate the effects of traumatic brain injuries. However, the required[…][doi.org]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Continuous EEG monitoring in the neurologic intensive care unit showed generalized background slowing and frequent spike-and-wave activity.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Cushing syndrome is characterized by truncal obesity, growth deceleration, skin changes, muscle weakness, and hypertension. Cushing syndrome in childhood usually results from the exogenous administration of glucocorticoids. This article presents the causes and discusses the treatment of endogenous Cushing[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Patients with HSV encephalitis may also have generalized slowing early, followed by focal slowing over the affected temporal lobe(s) and then progression to PLEDs.[clinicaladvisor.com] With subacute sclerosing panencephalitis due to measles, EEG typically shows well-defined periodic complexes in synchrony with myoclonic jerks.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Hydrocephalus

    A 39-year old man underwent surgery for recurrence of a cervical schwannoma. At 6 months postoperatively, severe headache appeared and head CT showed marked ventricular dilation that was diagnosed as delayed hydrocephalus. Dural repair surgery using a fascia patch of the tensor fasciae latae muscle was[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
