Causes of Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Sometimes, normal pressure hydrocephalus occurs for no clear reason.[stanfordhealthcare.org] The three hallmark normal pressure hydrocephalus symptoms are considered the “classic” clinical picture, but not everyone with normal pressure hydrocephalus experiences all[alz.org]

  • Dementia

    In patients with delirium, the EEG shows a diffuse slowing of the background rhythm. An exception is patients with delirium tremens, where the EEG shows fast activity.[web.archive.org] Pressure Hydrocephalus Vascular Dementia There are other conditions that can cause dementia or dementia-like symptoms including reactions to medications, metabolic problems[hopkinsmedicine.org] These may include viral infections such as HIV, Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, chronic heavy alcohol intake, Huntington's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy and normal pressure[news-medical.net]

The most common EEG pathology was focal slowing (30; 43.5%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
