917 Possible Causes for Epilepsy, Hydrocephalus, Obstructive Hydrocephalus

  • Subependymal Giant Cell Astrocytoma

    Communicating hydrocephalus is noted. The cerebrospinal fluid protein level was 737 mg/dl.[] We report a case of sudden unexpected death in an individual with epilepsy.[] Subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGCA) is a benign, slow-growing glial tumor that manifests with signs and symptoms of obstructive hydrocephalus most often in adolescent[]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Abstract Cortical biopsies of 13 patients with clinical diagnosis of congenital hydrocephalus, Arnold-Chiari malformation and hydrocephalus, and postmeningitis hydrocephalus[] (Courtesy Stephanie Barone) Six-year-old Allie Barone had been suffering from severe headaches for a few years — and since her family has a history of epilepsy and migraines[] Variable other central nervous system abnormalities might be present (partial or complete agenesis of the corpus callosum, a small fourth ventricle, obstructive hydrocephalus[]

  • Pineal Gland Cyst

    Postmortem examination revealed a glial cyst of the pineal gland and evidence of chronic obstructive hydrocephalus.[] Less frequently, patients present with ataxia, motor and sensory impairment, mental and emotional disturbances, epilepsy, circadian rhythm disturbances, hypothalamic dysfunction[] I had a seizure back in September and subsequently was sent to a Neurologist to check for Epilepsy. They ordered a MRI and found a lobulated mass in my pineal gland.[]

  • Hydrocephalus

    Hydrocephalus requires regular and long term follow-up.[] Pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy (PDE) is a rare disorder of the lysine metabolism, characterized by a pharmacoresistant epileptic encephalopathy that usually begins in the neonatal[] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[]

  • Cerebellar Hemorrhage

    BACKGROUND: Hydrocephalus is a common complication after spontaneous cerebellar hemorrhage (CH).[] However, it seems that epilepsy surgery patients are somewhat more prone to this kind of complication, compared to other surgical groups.[] The hematoma in the fourth ventricle was gently removed through the hematoma cavity, followed by thorough saline irrigation to release obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Tuberous Sclerosis

    Claudia Santoro, Genetics of Human Hydrocephalus, Pediatric Hydrocephalus, 10.1007/978-3-319-31889-9_1-2, (1-42), (2018).[] Calcification can be used to evaluate pharmacoresistant epilepsy in patients with TSC. Copyright 2018 British Epilepsy Association. Published by Elsevier Ltd.[] An obstructive hydrocephalus caused by an intraventricular expansive lesion was identified in brain CT.Observation by the ophthalmologist is indicated in all confirmed or[]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    KEYWORDS: Cerebral ventriculomegaly; Congenital hydrocephalus; Intracranial hypertension; Newborn; Obstructive hydrocephalus; Subdural hematoma; Ventricular atrium diverticulum[] CONCLUSIONS: In case of refractory treatment of epilepsy, dislocation of pacemaker electrodes is a, most certainly, rare but possible differential diagnosis.[] As many as 10 percent of patients had a history of alcoholism or epilepsy, the Welsh team reported.[]

  • Neurocysticercosis

    Intraventricular cysts or arachnoiditis usually cause hydrocephalus in neurocysticercosis but craniocervical junction cysts causing obstructive hydrocephalus are rare.[] KEYWORDS: Epilepsy; Epilepsy surgery; Neurocysticercosis[] Especially, fourth ventricular cysts carry the risk of obstructive hydrocephalus and brainstem compression and therefore should be extirpated completely.[]

  • Cysticercosis

    The shared features of the 4 forms of neurocysticercosis are headaches, seizures, and hydrocephalus.[] This study was carried out to investigate human cysticercosis, taeniasis and risk factors, and also their association with epilepsy in Bangoua, west Cameroon where epilepsy[] Obstructive hydrocephalus may also be caused by associated ependymitis. If cysticerci form in the basal cisterns, they can cause basilar arachnoiditis.[]

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    An adult with asymptomatic Dandy-Walker malformation without hydrocephalus was studied.[] Presentation A 20-year-old man with Dandy-Walker syndrome, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and congenital hydrocephalus with ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt presents with 4 months[] hydrocephalus.[]
