983 Possible Causes for Continuous Slow Activity, Disorganized Slow Background Activity, Limb Joint Contracture

  • 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] […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[en.wikipedia.org] 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]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Continuous EEG monitoring in the neurologic intensive care unit showed generalized background slowing and frequent spike-and-wave activity.[jamanetwork.com] She was treated for nonconvulsive seizures and given a continuous midazolam infusion. Approximately 1 week later an electrocardiogram showed conduction abnormalities.[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]

  • 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]
