7,912 Possible Causes for Facial Grimacing, Focal Interictal Epileptiform Discharges, Seizure

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    […] epilepsy of childhood childhood-onset absence epilepsy juvenile myoclonic epilepsy idiopathic generalized epilepsy Disagreement exists regarding the role of interictal epileptiform[childneurologyfoundation.org] Therapy is often unnecessary and seizures spontaneously end at puberty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In both children, the seizure frequency decreased with increasing age.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    […] generalized seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lateral temporal lobe seizures may spread and motor features such as contralateral upper limb dystonia, facial twitching or grimacing, and head and eye version may occur.[epilepsydiagnosis.org] One predictor for seizure recurrence is the distribution of seizure onset and interictal epileptiform discharges (IED).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    (EEG) hallmark of focal-onset seizures is the focal interictal epileptiform spike or sharp wave.[emedicine.com] Changes over time in overall QOLIE-31 and QOLIE-89 scores were significantly more positive for subjects who achieved seizure freedom (i.e., 100% reduction in seizure frequency[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] manifested by focal seizures.[doi.org]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    We present the case of an 11-year-old girl who presented with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, seizure disorder, and concerns of fatigue and increasing seizure frequency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] grimacing, and inarticulate speech (dysarthria)—all of which increase under stress or excitement.[britannica.com] Treatment may include physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, drugs to control seizures, relax muscle spasms, and alleviate pain; surgery to correct anatomical[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    KEYWORDS: Anti-NMDA-R encephalitis; Dynamical causal modelling (DCM); EEG; Seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination on the day of admission revealed an awake, alert, and interactive male with focal speech production difficulties, asymmetric facial grimace, hyperactive deep tendon[dx.doi.org] The presence of EDB, which can follow a pattern of well-characterized electroclinical seizures, in our patients was associated with seizures and SE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizure

    Electroencephalography (EEG) is performed as part of the seizure workup in all cases. It is more sensitive in the immediate period following a seizure.[symptoma.com] Most SUDEPs occur after one or more seizure(s) during sleep. Nocturnal seizures may go unrecognized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of seizure focus on electroencephalography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Wilson Disease

    His WD was in a state of remission when he developed the seizure disorder. On endoscopic cyst fenestration, he was relieved of the seizure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with epileptic seizures were provided with seizure control medication (levetiracetam). Tremor did not need treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was initially treated for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and a seizure disorder until brain imaging established the diagnosis of Wilson disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    The aim of this work is to investigate focal interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs) in IGEs, and their relation to clinical variables.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unilateral seizures, or hemiconvulsive attacks, are motor seizures with tonic and/or clonic phenomena that involve only one side of the body.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PGTC seizures in IGE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    Headaches and seizures are additional complaints.[symptoma.com] A brain tumor in the occipital lobe of the brain causes total or partial blindness, misunderstanding of visual information, comprehension problems with written words and seizures[healthyliving.azcentral.com] An EEG (electroencephalogram or "brain wave test") should also be done to make sure seizures are not coming from the tumor causing your headaches (could also cause visual[medhelp.org]

  • Migraine

    We believe that SMART is a misnomer that misjudge seizures among clinical features and we suggest to rename this entity as " Seizure with Migraine-like Attacks after Radiation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE RESULTS: Both patients demonstrated unilateral occipital EEG seizure patterns during their long-lasting visual aura, which eventually evolved into versive seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] WHAT THE PAPER ADDS: Weakness, seizures, ataxia, speech, or walking difficulties are more frequent in arterial ischaemic stroke (AIS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
