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

  • 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] Metastatic tumors often involve the bones of the spine and/or the spinal cord.[aans.org]

  • 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] cord.)[neurosurgerydallas.com] […] tumors arise from a "misguided" "CAP CELL" which is the embryonic cell of origin that ultimately makes for the development of the "meninges" (the covering of the brain and spinal[neurosurgerydallas.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] Metastatic tumors often involve the bones of the spine and/or the spinal cord.[aans.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] Both conditions may result in slowing on routine EEGs.[emedicine.medscape.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] Metastatic tumors often involve the bones of the spine and/or the spinal cord.[aans.org]

  • Frontal Lobe Neoplasm

Nearly all are benign.[columbiaspine.org]
