721 Possible Causes for Electroencephalogram Abnormal, Paroxysmal Activity - Sharp-Waves Parietal

  • Epilepsy

    Electroencephalogram findings were described in eleven, and nine (82%) showed epileptiform abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electroencephalograms (EEGs) measure electrical activity in the brain, helping to pinpoint which part of the brain is affected.[aurorahealthcare.org] These epilepsies share several important characteristics: diverse causes; severe and frequent seizures; diffusely abnormal background activity on electroencephalograms that[doi.org]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    An electroencephalogram (EEG) shows abnormal electrical activity involving the entire brain at once.[verywell.com] An electroencephalogram (EEG) detects abnormalities in the brain waves or electrical activity of the brain.[snowflakesofwinter.wordpress.com] These may be visualized in an electroencephalogram.[symptoma.com]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    The brainwave pattern observed during an electroencephalogram is abnormal in most vCJD patients.[web.archive.org] Periodic sharp-wave complexes were not observed on the electroencephalogram. Brain diffusion MRI did not reveal abnormal changes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An electroencephalogram (EEG) can reveal abnormal electrical impulses. A CT scan or MRI can rule out stroke as a cause of symptoms.[medicalnewstoday.com]

  • Vascular Dementia

    Electroencephalogram ( EEG ) - Detects abnormal electrical activity in the brain Cerebral angiography - Not used routinely in the evaluation of vascular dementia but sometimes[emedicinehealth.com] This is generally accompanied by myoclonus, and periodic sharp wave complexes in electroencephalogram (EEG) traces. Death occurs within six months of disease onset.[doi.org] […] clinical presentation of sporadic CJD is very variable and can include visual disturbances and ataxia, but rapidly progressive dementia soon becomes the dominant clinical abnormality[doi.org]

  • Encephalitis

    There may be fever, seizures, particular neurological findings, behavioural disturbances, abnormal brain waves (ie, electroencephalogram) or abnormal diagnostic imaging (ie[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A small amount is drawn off in a syringe and sent to a laboratory where it will be checked for any abnormalities.[brainandspine.org.uk] Electroencephalogram (EEG) An electroencephalogram (EEG) involves having wires attached to your head for 20 to 30 minutes during which time a recording of the electrical activity[brainandspine.org.uk]

  • Stroke

    , A M Saunders, D Schmechel, M Pericak-Vance, J Enghild, G S Salvesen, and A D Roses Abstract Apolipoprotein E is immunochemically localized to the senile plaques, vascular amyloid, and neurofibrillary tangles of Alzheimer disease. In vitro, apolipoprotein E in cerebrospinal fluid binds to synthetic beta A4 peptide (the[…][doi.org]

  • 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]

  • Generalized Motor Seizure

    Pre-operative electrical stimulation of the acoustic nerve, however, exhibited a good nerve function with no evidence of abnormal waveforms in the electroencephalogram (EEG[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abnormal brain wave patterns are seen in epileptic patients even in the absence of seizures.[startstemcells.com] 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.[medlineplus.gov]
