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

  • Hypoglycemia

    A 61-year-old woman with multiple metastatic and unresectable gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) was referred for investigation of refractory hypoglycemia that developed four months before this hospitalization. On admission, her fasting plasma glucose was 38 mg/dL despite 10% glucose infusion. Investigations[…][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] Studies suggested that thalamic deafferentation from the cortex rather than cortical deafferentation from below may be the slow wave mechanism 11,15,16.[scielo.br]

  • 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

    The frequency of alexithymia and the proportion of cases reporting low emotional empathy after traumatic brain injury (TBI) were compared with a control group. The study also examined the relationship between alexithymia and emotional empathy, controlling for the influence of cognitive ability, severity of head[…][oadoi.org]

  • 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]

  • Encephalitis

    Speech and general motor skills resulted slowed in their preparation/execution phases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electroencephalography showed a "slowed" pattern, with delta/theta waves mainly in the prefrontal cortex and in sensorimotor networks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hydrocephalus

    Hydrocephalus cases were regularly described by Hippocrates, Galen, and early and medieval Arabian physicians, who believed that this disease was caused by an extracerebral accumulation of water. Operative procedures used in ancient times are neither proven by skull findings today nor clearly reported in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
