704 Possible Causes for Cortical Thinning, Generalized Slow Theta Activities

  • Alzheimer Disease

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Hydrocephalus

    Fetuses who develop progressive ventricular enlargement and cortical thinning from hydrocephalus before 28 weeks may have irreversible damage by 32 weeks.[chop.edu] A CT scan showed severe dilation of the brain’s lateral ventricles, while an MRI scan revealed massive enlargement of the lateral third and fourth venricles, a very thin cortical[sciencedaily.com] Prenatal factors such as progression, degree of cortical mantle thinning to less than 1.5 cm and in utero duration of greater than four weeks are associated with a poor prognosis[chop.edu]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Endocrine. 2016 Jul;53(1):47-57. doi: 10.1007/s12020-016-0902-0. Epub 2016 Mar 7. Abstract Spontaneous hypoglycemia is a puzzling clinical problem and an important reason for referral to endocrinologists. Several clinical conditions such as insulinomas, non-insulinoma pancreatogenous hypoglycemia syndrome, insulin[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    Symptomatic hyponatremia is considered a rare complication of oral bowel preparation for colonoscopy. The pathophysiology underlying this phenomenon has been widely regarded as a mere sequela of excessive arginine vasopressin (AVP) release. This case describes a 61-year old woman who developed acute hyponatremic[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
