15 Possible Causes for Continuous Rhythmic Slowing, EEG Generalized Slowing, Slowing - Theta Waves Frontal Bilaterally

  • 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

    Although the neuropathologic changes and diagnostic criteria for the neurodegenerative disorder Alzheimer's disease (AD) are well-established, the clinical symptoms vary largely. Symptomatically, frontal variant of AD (fv-AD) presents very similarly to behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), which creates[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Pediatric head injuries are common and may present with varying degrees of altered mental status in children. The approach to evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of further injury is important in achieving good health outcomes after a head injury. In this article, we review the pathophysiology,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

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

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Adrenal oncocytoma is very rare pathological variant of adrenal neoplasm. These are usually large and non-functional; however, rarely functional adrenal oncocytomas are also presented as Cushing's syndrome and pheochromocytoma. We report a case of adrenal oncocytoma in 38 year old female presented with symptoms[…][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]
