15 Possible Causes for Continuous Rhythmic Slowing, Generalized Slow Delta Activities, Slowing - Theta Waves 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

    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] In general, fast-growing tumors, such as glioblastoma multiforme or metastatic brain tumors, are associated with focal slow activity occurring in the delta frequency 16.[scielo.br] They found that cortical gray matter lesions alone did not produce slow activity, probably because the pure cortical lesions presumably destroy the neuronal generators located[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

    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

    slowing in the delta or theta frequencies and focal sharp-wave activity. 14 Pathological findings of von Economo disease typically consist of a nonhemorrhagic involvement[jamanetwork.com] […] glucose level is invariably normal, but oligoclonal band positivity has been reported. 21 An EEG during the acute phase of the illness often shows diffuse unilateral or bilateral[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]

  • 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]

  • 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] […] and delta), presence of particular EEG patterns (focal or generalized), intermittent activity suppression, or an electrocortical silence.
