32 Possible Causes for Cortical Thinning, Occipital Slowing, Vertigo

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Blast-Exposed Veterans With Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Show Greater Frontal Cortical Thinning and Poorer Executive Functioning .[] Symptoms of a central source may include nausea with nonpositional vertigo and imbalance.[] Further observations on posterior ampullary nerve transection for positional vertigo. Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 1978;87:300-305. ISI PUBMED 52. Hinoki M, Terayama K.[]

  • Meningioma

    The tumor presented as a dural-based mass with cortical buckling and a thin rim of trapped CSF.[] A 60-year-old immunocompetent woman, followed for more than 10 years for temporal meningioma causing vertigo and mixed hearing loss, presented with cervical lymphadenopathy[] Herein we report such a case of an 80-year-old man with history of multiple cancer who presented with ear pain, vertigo and hearing loss.[]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    Stufflebeam , Current dipole orientation and distribution of epileptiform activity correlates with cortical thinning in left mesiotemporal epilepsy , NeuroImage , 52 , 4 ,[] Other medical conditions with similar symptoms include panic attacks, psychosis spectrum disorders, tardive dyskinesia, and occipital lobe epilepsy.[] Temporal lobe seizures are often accompanied by strange sensations, sweating, flushing, vertigo, epigastric sensations, taste, and hearing of sounds or melodies, nausea, hallucinations[]

  • Cerebellar Ataxia

    A, Axial T2 image shows cortical thinning and fissure enlargement in the vermis and cerebellar hemispheres.[] Highlights Cerebellar ataxia is a form of ataxia that originates from abnormalities such as inflammation in the occipital and temporal lobes of the cerebellum.[] Author information 1 Department of Neurology, University of Munich, Munich, Germany. 2 German Center for Vertigo and Balance Disorders[]

  • Neurosyphilis

    These patients have also been found to have cerebral atrophy (cortical thinning of the temporal and frontoparietal regions bilaterally, most prominent in the temporal regions[] The EEG during PcG pre-treatment showed frequent right occipital spikes and right frontocentral slow waves, which disappeared after treatment.[] A 31-year-old African-American homosexual man presented with bilateral hearing loss, constant vertigo, intermittent horizontal diplopia, and bilateral facial droop, which[]

  • Uncinate Seizure

    thinning, reduced white matter integrity, and other morphometric impairment in nl-TLE patients compared to TLE-MTS patients and healthy controls, Utilize resting-state fMRI[] Valium: alternative to ativan, but longer t1/2, greater respiratory depression BY LOCATION TEMPORAL LOBE Activated by sleep A/w Herpes encephalitis Stereotyped spikes -- slow[] Symptoms include vertigo, a tilting sensation, and vague dizziness.[]

  • Unverricht-Lundborg Syndrome

    Thus the progression of cortical thinning cannot be explained by age alone.[] High-amplitude slowing (note scale) with no organized background and multifocal spikes (right frontal and left occipital in this sample).[] The most important imitators of epileptic seizures are dizziness, vertigo, syncope, complicated migraine; and somewhat less frequently sleep disorders, transient cerebral[]

  • Spondylo-Ocular Syndrome

    thinning and striations, coarsened trabeculae along with lytic lesions Clinically: (highly variable) Leads principally to bilateral hilar adenopathy, pulmonary infiltrates[] Treatments appear to be in very slow evolution. We find it puzzling that section of the occipital nerve, through RFGN or just rhizotomy is not done more often.[] For a diagnosis of cervical vertigo, it is essential to exclude other causes of vertigo.[]

  • Cerebellar Mass Lesion

    […] of skull may be apparent a.k.a., Lhermitte-Duclos disease, associated with Cowden syndrome Oligodendroglioma Partially Ca subcortical/cortical mass in middle-aged adult Majority[] Location matters as well – the incidence of seizures in occipital lobe lesions is 1/3 that of frontal, temporal, or parietal lobe lesions.[] Vascular compression of the vestibulochoclear nerve also causes vertigo and tinnitus.[]

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy Type 4

    […] atrophy, thin CC AD 50% SCN1A AD 13% PLCB1 AR 2 cases TBC1D24 AR 1 family West syndrome TSC1/2 Tuberous sclerosis AD 20% (where onset of spasms without other prior seizures[] Prolonged IPS induced synchronous eyelid myoclonias (b) and finally a burst of high‐voltage polyspike‐and‐slow wave complexes over the occipital regions (c).[] The most important imitators of epileptic seizures are dizziness, vertigo, syncope, complicated migraine; and somewhat less frequently sleep disorders, transient cerebral[]
