1,060 Possible Causes for Disorganized Slow Background Activity, EEG Generalized Slowing, Limb Joint Contracture

  • Stroke

    CONCLUSIONS: Abnormal EEG in general and generalized slowing in particular are associated with clinical deterioration after acute ischemic stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[en.wikipedia.org] Background The background EEG may be normal or show focal slowing over the location of the stroke.[epilepsydiagnosis.org]

  • 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. Abstract We encountered a 62-year-old woman who experienced frequent episodes of hypoglycemia. She was diagnosed with postprandial[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    Hyponatremia is defined as a serum sodium level of less than 135 mEq/L in a patient. Although hyponatremia is not an uncommon laboratory finding, especially in the elderly, hunting for the etiology is a challenging issue for any clinician. The three first-line investigations that are required for further analysis are[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Although the neuropathologic changes and diagnostic criteria for the neurodegenerative disorder Alzheimer's disease (AD) are well-established, the clinical symptoms vary largely. Symptomatically, frontal variant of AD (fv-AD) presents very similarly to behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), which creates[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Pediatric head injuries are common and may present with varying degrees of altered mental status in children. The approach to evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of further injury is important in achieving good health outcomes after a head injury. In this article, we review the pathophysiology,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Continuous EEG monitoring in the neurologic intensive care unit showed generalized background slowing and frequent spike-and-wave activity.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Cushing syndrome is characterized by truncal obesity, growth deceleration, skin changes, muscle weakness, and hypertension. Cushing syndrome in childhood usually results from the exogenous administration of glucocorticoids. This article presents the causes and discusses the treatment of endogenous Cushing[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Patients with HSV encephalitis may also have generalized slowing early, followed by focal slowing over the affected temporal lobe(s) and then progression to PLEDs.[clinicaladvisor.com] With subacute sclerosing panencephalitis due to measles, EEG typically shows well-defined periodic complexes in synchrony with myoclonic jerks.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • 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]
