  • Epilepsy

    It remains unclear whether seizures and epileptiform activity on the EEG are causative or comorbid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Her EEG showed slow background with continuous occipital small spikes and photosensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    In this setting, release of both antidiuretic hormone (ADH) (increases renal permeability to water) and renin (increases renal sodium retention) occurs.[doi.org]

  • Stroke

    The first EEG background activity asymmetry and first EEG with interictal epileptiform activity were independent predictors of poststroke epilepsy during the first year after[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] Key words: abnormal EEG, non-epileptiform abnormalities, slow activity.[scielo.br] Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges (PLEDs) are EEG abnormalities that signify acute brain dysfunction or unilateral brain lesion, usually destructive in nature,[omicsonline.org]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    However, little is currently known about the modulation of these networks by epileptiform activity, such as interictal spikes and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other medical conditions with similar symptoms include panic attacks, psychosis spectrum disorders, tardive dyskinesia, and occipital lobe epilepsy.[en.wikipedia.org] Characterized by a benign behaviour, a slow growth, a sharp delineation and usually show absence of edema.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    An electroencephalogram was consistent with generalised encephalopathy without focal epileptiform activity.[mja.com.au] There was no evidence of epileptiform activity on electroencephalogram.[academic.oup.com] A noncontrast computed tomographic scan of the head was normal, and an electroencephalogram (EEG) showed diffuse slowing but no epileptiform activity.[jamanetwork.com]

  • Encephalitis

    Some peculiar patterns in this activity can be related to the diagnosis of encephalitis, for e.g. in HSE, EEG often documents characteristic paroxysmal lateral epileptiform[symptoma.com] The presence of periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) is associated with HSV encephalitis but may also be consistent with seizure activity, EBV encephalitis[clinicaladvisor.com] Electroencephalogram (EEG) can be done to record the electrical activity of the brain.[symptoma.com]

  • Epilepsy with Continuous Spike-and-Slow-Waves during Sleep

    Specific cutoff thresholds or measurement methods for epileptiform activity frequency have yet to be defined.[jcsm.aasm.org] The waking interictal EEG showed a slow left temporo-occipital focus (Fig. 3A).[docslide.com.br] The discharge is often slightly faster than 3 Hz at onset, and tends to slow down towards the end.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Continuous Spike-and-Slow-Waves during Sleep

    Specific cutoff thresholds or measurement methods for epileptiform activity frequency have yet to be defined.[jcsm.aasm.org] Slowing of PDR, ND, intermittent rhythmic delta in frontal / occipital, sometimes triphasic, occipital spikes, focal slowing (this is not s/f lesion).
