  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Days later brought a new episode of acute delirium, with progressive loss of strength in upper and lower extremities, paresthesias and abdominal pain.[archivesofmedicine.com] Psychological symptoms are variable: irritability, emotionality, depression, considerable anxiety and, more rarely, auditory and visual hallucinations, disorientation, mental[orpha.net] On the following day, he developed altered mentation in the form of fluctuating levels of orientation, agitation, irritability, confusion, and visual hallucination (seeing[doi.org]

  • Delirium

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    In fact, 90% of patients with temporal interictal epileptiform abnormalities on their electroencephalograms (EEGs) have a history of seizures.[emedicine.medscape.com] In a study published this week in Medical Humanities, the authors feel that temporal lobe epilepsy is a more likely explanation as it can produce complex visual hallucinations[medicalnewstoday.com] These visual illusions differ from the visual hallucinations associated with occipital lobe seizure in that there is no formed visual image.[patient.info]

  • Epilepsy

    Electroencephalogram findings were described in eleven, and nine (82%) showed epileptiform abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , such as blindness, visual hallucinations, illusions, and distorted scenery like macropsia, where everything surrounding you seems larger than normal.[verywell.com] Electroencephalograms (EEGs) measure electrical activity in the brain, helping to pinpoint which part of the brain is affected.[aurorahealthcare.org]

  • Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizure

    Electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring is performed to detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain.[britannica.com] BACKGROUND: A complex partial seizure can cause a variety of visual system signs and symptoms, including visual hallucinations, dilated pupils, and changes in vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An EEG (electroencephalogram) will be done to check the electrical activity in the brain. People with seizures often have abnormal electrical activity seen on this test.[nlm.nih.gov]

    The brainwave pattern observed during an electroencephalogram is abnormal in most vCJD patients.[web.archive.org] Her symptoms included behavioral change, visual hallucinations, vertigo, and recent falls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Periodic sharp-wave complexes were not observed on the electroencephalogram. Brain diffusion MRI did not reveal abnormal changes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
