15 Possible Causes for Continuous Rhythmic Slowing, Intermittent Slow Activity, 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.

  • Stroke

    Generalized or regional bisynchronous slow activity - Generalized or regional bisynchronous slow activity may be intermittent or continuous, and seems to be due to disordered[scielo.br] Continuous slow activity suggests a more severe brain damage (likelihood of increased mass effect, large lesion or deep hemispheric lesion), whereas intermittent slow activity[scielo.br] A nonrhythmic, temporal intermittent polymorphic delta activity (TIPDA) may occur interictally in patients with temporal and extratemporal epilepsy with an equal frequency[scielo.br]

  • 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]
