11 Possible Causes for EEG Slowing, Seizure, Spinal Canal and Spinal Cord Meningioma

  • Meningioma

    Radiation therapy to the brain and/or spinal cord/canal, for some other disease process, has been implicated in subsequent Meningioma formation, especially in children.[neurosurgerydallas.com] These types of posterior fossa meningiomas can cause headaches, seizures, and difficulty walking.[mountsinai.org] Few studies focus on seizure outcomes after resections of meningiomas.[epilepsy.com]

  • Glioma

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] RESULTS: Obvious seizure control was observed in 10 analyzed patients (100%) and 6 patients (60%) became seizure-free.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: Seizures are the most common presenting sign of patients with diffuse glioma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • CNS Metastasis

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] […] patient, a follow up case of carcinoma tongue post radiotherapy, presented with history of non-healing ulcer on lateral aspect of neck since 2 years and recurrent episodes of seizures[sciencepubco.com] Seizures Brain tumors often originate elsewhere in the body. Here are four symptoms that cancer survivors should never ignore. This includes any type of seizure.[cityofhope.org]

  • Temporal Lobe Tumor

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] This rhythmic activity contrasts with the usual arrhythmic slowing seen focally with brain tumor and may conceivably be related to the rhythmic slowing associated with seizure[karger.com] Worthwhile seizure control was achieved in 29 patients (82.8%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Frontal Lobe Neoplasm

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] After an EEG proved that the seizures were coming from my temporal lobe, I was put on Keppra and have not had any seizures in the past month.[epilepsy.com] […] of patients with seizures in general [4].[austinpublishinggroup.com]

  • Ganglioglioma

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] Interictal electroencephalography (EEG) showed diffuse bursts of slightly irregular high-voltage spikes and slow waves without hypsarrhythmia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ganglioglioma is a rare tumor of the central nervous system that typically presents with seizures in children and young adults.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurofibromatosis Type 1

    canal and spinal cord meningioma (4), intraneural perineurioma (4), poland syndrome (4), hypotropia (4), basal cell nevus syndrome (4), spinal cord ependymoma (4), lung sarcoma[genome.ucsc.edu] The EEG findings can vary from normal to focal or multifocal spike waves, spike and slow spike wave complexes at 2 Hz consistent with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, and even a hypsarrhythmia[epilepsy.com] The aim of the study was to evaluate the role of NF1 in seizures pathogenesis in a cohort of children with NF1 and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dysembryoplastic Neuroepithelial Tumor

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] The EEG was abnormal in all cases reviewed (n 13): localized slow activity was seen in 12 and interictal spiking in 10 patients, being less extensive than or concordant with[thedoctorsdoctor.com] seizures).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Caudal Spinal Cord Tumor

    cord Noncancerous but invasive Ependymoma Cells lining the canal in the center of the spinal cord Noncancerous Meningioma Cells of the layers of tissue covering the spinal[merckmanuals.com] (petit mal seizure) generalized seizure characterized by abrupt cessation of ongoing activity with a blank stare and lost or impaired consciousness lasting on average 10-[strokecenter.org] Filum terminale ependymomas arise just below the spinal cord, in the lumbar (lower) and sacral (lowest) spinal canal. Nearly all are benign.[columbiaspine.org]

  • Rare Tumor of Neuroepithelial Tissue

    There are also tumors of the spinal nerves (such as neurofibromas or schwannomas), lining of the spinal canal (meningiomas) and spinal fluid compartment (meningeal carcinomatosis[aans.org] Five had partial complex seizures and one had partial simple seizures. Age at onset of partial seizures ranged from 2 to 19 years.[thedoctorsdoctor.com] . [2] The tumours were encountered when the patient required surgery to help with the epilepsy to help with the seizures.[en.wikipedia.org]
