804 Possible Causes for Disorganized Slow Background Activity, Generalized Slowing - Delta Waves, Limb Joint Contracture

  • Stroke

    Thalamic lesions generally produced focal or unilateral delta activity, but the slow activity varied in time of onset, amplitude and degree of focality 16.[scielo.br] […] disuse of the limb with the use of splints or other tools to stabilize the joint.[en.wikipedia.org] In general, fast-growing tumors, such as glioblastoma multiforme or metastatic brain tumors, are associated with focal slow activity occurring in the delta frequency 16.[scielo.br]

  • Hypoglycemia

  • 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]

  • 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]
