404 Possible Causes for EEG Generalized Slowing, Frontotemporal/Subcortical Dementia, Generalized Arrhythmic Slowing

  • Alzheimer Disease

    dementia, primary progressive aphasia, semantic dementia, Lewy body dementia, subcortical dementia, and vascular dementia.[oadoi.org] […] the memory profile and indicate the underlying pathology, the assessment of other cognitive functions, and the neuropsychological patterns of typical Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal[oadoi.org]

  • Dementia

    dementia).[patient.info] Frontotemporal dementia (less than 5%). Specific degeneration/atrophy of the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain.[patient.info] Brain damage due to cerebrovascular disease: either major stroke, multiple smaller unrecognised strokes (multi-infarct) or chronic changes in smaller vessels (subcortical[patient.info]

  • Hypoglycemia

    An 84-year-old Japanese woman with metastatic insulinoma suffered from frequent hypoglycemic events. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) confirmed severe and frequent symptomatic/asymptomatic hypoglycemia. After the initiation of everolimus treatment, the hypoglycemic events were rapidly eliminated. CGM revealed[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    CONCLUSIONS: Abnormal EEG in general and generalized slowing in particular are associated with clinical deterioration after acute ischemic stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Background The background EEG may be normal or show focal slowing over the location of the stroke.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Gloor et al. 16, investigated the location of structural pathology that produced localized, lateralized or generalized EEG slow activity.[scielo.br]

  • 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]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Objectives: This critical literature review examines historical and current investigations on the efficacy and mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Potential safety risks and oxygen toxicity, as well as HBO's future potential, are also discussed. Methods: Directed literature[…][oadoi.org]

  • 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’s syndrome can develop for two reasons: Medication containing a cortisol-like synthetic compound called glucocorticoid 1, 2 A benign or malignant tumor in the body that makes the adrenal (pronounced uh-DREEN-l ) gland produce too much cortisol 1, 2 Medication Medication is responsible for most cases of[…][web.archive.org]

  • 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

    Hydrocephalus cases were regularly described by Hippocrates, Galen, and early and medieval Arabian physicians, who believed that this disease was caused by an extracerebral accumulation of water. Operative procedures used in ancient times are neither proven by skull findings today nor clearly reported in the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
