332 Possible Causes for Epileptiform Activity

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Ling, Spontaneous Epileptiform Activity in Rat Neocortex after Controlled Cortical Impact Injury, Journal of Neurotrauma, 27, 8, (1541), (2010).[] Kombian, Anticonvulsant enaminone E139 suppresses epileptiform activity in rat hippocampal slices, Epilepsy Research, 76, 2-3, (85), (2007). Steven L. Neese, Luke K.[] Tevfik Yılmaz, Metehan Akça, Yahya Turan, Hakan Ocak, Kağan Kamaşak and Mehmet Yildirim, Efficacy of dexamethasone on penicillin-induced epileptiform activity in rats: An[]

  • Hyponatremia

    Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease with unknown cause characterized by non-caseating granuloma formations. It may present with bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy, skin lesions, eye and musculoskeletal system involvement. Hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria are important electrolyte imbalances resulting from sarcoidosis[…][]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    However, little is currently known about the modulation of these networks by epileptiform activity, such as interictal spikes and seizures.[] Neurophysiologic findings in NTLE are typically a predominance of lateral temporal interictal epileptiform activity (IEA) and an ictal onset pattern consisting of irregular[] Our study focused on lateralization and extent of epileptiform activity regarding postoperative seizure persistence and the effect of reoperation.[]

  • Epilepsy

    It remains unclear whether seizures and epileptiform activity on the EEG are causative or comorbid.[] Through an accurate Video-EEG polygraphic analysis, we demonstrated that seizures are related to an abnormal increase of epileptiform activity after eye-closure or loss of[] Her EEG at 2 years was reported as showing frequent left central epileptiform activity.[]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    epileptiform activity.[] Levetiracetam may selectively prevent hypersynchronization of epileptiform burst firing and propagation of seizure activity.[] Free Education August 2013 Sevoflurane-induced Epileptiform Electroencephalographic Activity and Generalized Tonic–Clonic Seizures in a Volunteer Study Author Affiliations[]

  • Hyperglycemia

    Monoballismus is rarely seen clinically, but when observed, it is usually a manifestation of an acute cerebrovascular accident (CVA). We report a case of monoballismus observed in a patient without evidence of a CVA. We observed a case of monoballismus in a 60-year-old diabetic patient who had not had a stroke. The[…][]

  • Insomnia

    PURPOSE: We report a novel case of "grand mal on awakening" from sleep presenting with intractable insomnia associated with interictal epileptiform activity (IEA) during sleep[]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    This impairment could be correlated with the amount of nocturnal epileptiform activity.[] Abstract Benign rolandic epilepsy (BRE) and Landau-Kleffner syndrome (LKS) are similar epilepsy syndromes with sleep-accentuated epileptiform activity, sporadic seizures,[] CONCLUSION: In RE, structural connectivity is reduced for several connections involving the rolandic regions, from which the epileptiform activity originates.[]

  • Hypertension

    Following eclampsia, the EEG may reveal epileptiform activity.[] Electroencephalography An electroencephalogram (EEG) may be indicated to evaluate recurrent seizure activity, persistent altered level of consciousness, or altered mental[]

  • Panic Attacks

    A clinical trial using anti-epileptics could be successful in patients not responding to antidepressants or in the presence of epileptiform EEG activity.[]
