18 Possible Causes for Continuous Rhythmic Slowing, EEG Generalized Slowing, Generalized Slow Delta Activities

  • Hypoglycemia

    An 84-year-old Japanese woman with metastatic insulinoma suffered from frequent hypoglycemic events. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) confirmed severe and frequent symptomatic/asymptomatic hypoglycemia. After the initiation of everolimus treatment, the hypoglycemic events were rapidly eliminated. CGM revealed[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Thalamic lesions generally produced focal or unilateral delta activity, but the slow activity varied in time of onset, amplitude and degree of focality 16.[scielo.br] 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]

  • Hyponatremia

Abstract Summary Background and objectives Severe hyponatremia ( Design, setting, participants, & measurements The relationship between mortality and serum sodium (sNa)[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Alzheimer's disease (AD) related genes have been elucidated by advanced genetic techniques. Familial autosomal dominant AD genes founded by linkage analyses are APP, PSEN1, PSEN2, ABCA7, and SORL1. Genome-wide association studies have found risk genes such as ABCA7, BIN1, CASS4, CD33, CD2AP, CELF1, CLU, CR1, DSG2,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Objectives: This critical literature review examines historical and current investigations on the efficacy and mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Potential safety risks and oxygen toxicity, as well as HBO's future potential, are also discussed. Methods: Directed literature[…][oadoi.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’s syndrome can develop for two reasons: Medication containing a cortisol-like synthetic compound called glucocorticoid 1, 2 A benign or malignant tumor in the body that makes the adrenal (pronounced uh-DREEN-l ) gland produce too much cortisol 1, 2 Medication Medication is responsible for most cases of[…][web.archive.org]

  • Metabolic Encephalopathy

    In the cases of encephalopathy, EEG can register generalized slowing or suppression of the EEG reactivity, loss of fast rhythm with occurrence of diffuse slow activity (theta[neurologyindia.com] In general, the EEG in metabolic encephalopathy is abnormal; background slowing is the most common pattern found ( 9 Hz) [ 5 ].[aneskey.com] In the cases of encephalopathy, EEG can register generalized slowing or suppression of the EEG reactivity, loss of fast rhythm with occurrence of diffuse slow activity (theta[neurologyindia.com]

  • 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]
