34 Possible Causes for EEG Shows Photosensitivity

  • Epilepsy

    Her EEG showed slow background with continuous occipital small spikes and photosensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An EEG showed generalised epileptogenic dysfunction and photosensitivity. No brain imaging was performed.[dx.doi.org] CONCLUSION: Our case showed rare manifestations and special EEG features of PME, which may be confused with occipital epilepsy or photosensitive epilepsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tonic-Clonic Seizure

    The EEG shows one of the patterns of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. The patient may be photosensitive."[mhmedical.com]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    The EEG shows generalized spike-and-wave and polyspike-and-wave. Photosensitivity is common.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] Photosensitivity will usually show on the electroencephalogram (EEG) if you have JME. Specific advice will be given about photosensitivity.[epilepsy.org.uk] Fourteen percent showed (24/175) photosensitivity on routine EEG.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Unverricht-Lundborg Syndrome

    The EEG usually shows photosensitivity, abnormal slow background, generalized high-amplitude multispikes, 3- to 5-Hertz spike waves or polyspike and wave complexes.[epilepsy.com] The EEG may also be abnormal during wakefulness and show polyspike discharges and photosensitivity (spike and wave or polyspike and wave activity in response to flashing lights[epilepsy.org.uk] .  EEG shows generalised fast spike-and-wave discharges with photosensitivity.  Genetically heterogenous. 21.  Inclusions are also present in the peripheral blood lymphocytes[slideshare.net]

  • Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy Type 8

    The EEG shows discharges of fast spike-waves and polyspike-waves, photosensitivity, deterioration of background activity, and multifocal abnormalities especially posteriorly[pediatricneurologybriefs.com] .  EEG shows generalised fast spike-and-wave discharges with photosensitivity.  Genetically heterogenous. 21.  Inclusions are also present in the peripheral blood lymphocytes[slideshare.net]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    The EEG shows one of the patterns of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. The patient may be photosensitive."[neurology.mhmedical.com]

  • Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy Type 3

    .  EEG shows generalised fast spike-and-wave discharges with photosensitivity.  Genetically heterogenous. 21.  Inclusions are also present in the peripheral blood lymphocytes[slideshare.net]

  • Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy Type 7

    .  EEG shows generalised fast spike-and-wave discharges with photosensitivity.  Genetically heterogenous. 21.  Inclusions are also present in the peripheral blood lymphocytes[slideshare.net]

  • Absence Seizure

    Atypical absence seizures have a less distinct beginning and end and are not usually precipitated by hyperventilation or photic stimulation, and the EEG shows generalised[bestpractice.bmj.com] […] myoclonic epilepsy (JME; generalised syndrome characterised by myoclonic jerks, generalised tonic-clonic seizures, and, less commonly, absence seizures; strong association with photosensitivity[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Generalized Motor Seizure

    The EEG shows one of the patterns of idiopathic generalized epilepsy.[medlink.com] There is a significant correlation with photosensitivity ( Commission on Classification and Terminology of the International League Against Epilepsy 1989 ).[medlink.com]
