827 Possible Causes for Diffuse Encephalopathy

  • Meningitis

    Rheumatoid meningitis presenting with a stroke-like attack (RMSA) is a rare manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). When the patients arrive within the time-window for recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) infusion therapy, no diagnostic protocol has been established. A 55-year-old woman was brought[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Its highest levels were observed in subjects with a clinically symptomatic alcohol-related encephalopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our results suggest that scyllo-inositol is produced within the central nervous system and shows a diffuse but heterogenous distribution in brain where it can persist several[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The cohort was composed of individuals with acute, subacute or chronic encephalopathy or without any clinical encephalopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Plasmodium Vivax

    Cerebral malaria (CM) is a diffuse encephalopathy associated with coma and seizures commonly caused by Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum) in children with severe malaria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cefepime

    On Day 40, an EEG confirmed the existence of moderate diffuse encephalopathy. Finally, the patient died as a consequence of severe heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The EEG of the remaining patients showed diffuse slowing.[neurology.org] In the patients with diffuse slowing, the discontinuation of cefepime had no impact on the EEG.[neurology.org]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

    Visual impairment associated with Charles Bonnet syndrome is rarely reported in childhood. We describe a child who presented with visual hallucinations and postinfectious bilateral retrobulbar optic neuritis. The patient had undergone acyclovir therapy for 3 weeks because of herpes encephalitis. Four days after[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
