  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    OBJECTIVE: We aimed to redefine various periodic patterns (PPs) observed on electroencephalography (EEG) in patients with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) using the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Kunze, Clinical changes and EEG patterns preceding the onset of periodic sharp complexes in Creutzfeldt — Jakob disease, Acta Neurologica Scandinavica, 97, 2, (99-106), (2009[doi.org] It also became apparent that the duration could vary greatly ranging from weeks to several years as did the electroencephalographic (EEG) patterns that had the characteristic[doi.org]

  • Encephalopathy

    This EEG pattern is continuous and remains unchanged during both waking and sleeping states. Structural abnormalities can often be seen on cranial MRI.[orpha.net] […] and paroxysmal bursts of sharp and slow waves, these drugs increase epileptiform activity in known epileptic patients, clozapine increase bilateral spike waves discharges[slideshare.net] […] such as triphasic waves, periodic discharges, NCSE, coma patterns (alpha, theta and spindle), burst suppression, or others were excluded from this investigation.[scielo.br]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy Type 4

    This is done by performing an electroencephalogram or EEG. This is a painless and non-invasive means of recording the patterns of electrical activity of the brain.[kcnq2cure.org] The EEG examination showed diffuse abnormal background activity, with sporadic isolated bilateral sharp waves over the occipital regions (a).[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] KCNQ2E is often associated with a burst-suppression pattern on EEG but may have other non-specific abnormalities and is typically not normal between seizures, in contrast[kcnq2cure.org]

  • Pyridoxine Dependency Syndrome

    The typical EEG pattern is a consistent (wake and sleep) “suppression-burst” pattern with periods of diffuse amplitude suppression alternating with bursts of high amplitude[demosmedical.com] The most noteworthy interictal pattern consists of bursts or runs of high voltage relatively bilaterally synchronous 1-4 Hz activity with intermixed spikes and or sharp waves[indianpediatrics.net] Diagnosis of Ohtahara syndrome is based on the clinical picture and EEG findings. The prognosis is poor, with many affected children dying in infancy.[demosmedical.com]

  • Postictal State

    There were muscle jerks just before and just after the flat period of the EEG (J.G. van Dijk, unpublished results).[academic.oup.com] For each seizure, the following elements were observed: 1) activity at seizure onset including spikes, sharp waves, desynchronization and irregular paroxysmal activity; 2)[scielo.br] The slow-flat-slow pattern has most often been described for syncope involving asystole (Gastaut, 1974 ; Stephenson, 1990 ; Breningstall, 1996 ), but can occur without asystole[academic.oup.com]
