179 Possible Causes for Facial Grimacing, Hyperactivity, Seizure

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    In one case, a 6-year-old boy was successfully treated with a psychostimulant to target hyperactivity and impulsivity ( 10 ).[dx.doi.org] KEYWORDS: Anti-NMDA-R encephalitis; Dynamical causal modelling (DCM); EEG; Seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FDG-PET hyperactivity in basal ganglia correlating with clinical course in anti-NDMA-R antibodies encephalitis.[dx.doi.org]

  • Wilson Disease

    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] 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] About 30% of Wilson disease patients will exhibit psychiatric disturbances that include changes in behavior, personality changes, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity[themedicalbiochemistrypage.org]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    The diagnosis of attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder was made according to the DSM-IV.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Therapy is often unnecessary and seizures spontaneously end at puberty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] the syndrome, are a feature of several related childhood epilepsies and are frequently observed in common developmental disorders (eg, speech dyspraxia, attention deficit hyperactivity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Huntington's Disease

    Lesions of the posterior aspect of the putamen with excitotoxins 31 or lentiviral-mediated delivery of mutated Htt 28 elicit hyperactivity, choreiform movements, stereotypies[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We diagnosed psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] grimaces.[patient.info]

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    The patient presented with a slowly progressive illness with seizures, extrapyramidal symptoms, cerebellar ataxia, dementia, spasticity, myoclonic movements and a severe demyelinating[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] grimacing painful muscle spasms HSD is a genetic disease.[healthline.com] […] extensor toe signs, progressive intellectual impairment, retinitis pigmentosa and optic atrophy (usually associated visual evoked response and electroretinogram abnormalities), seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tourette Syndrome

    Both ADHD factors (inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms) were genetically related to TS, ADHD, and OCD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Described here is a patient with Tourette syndrome and epilepsy who displayed a dangerous compulsive tic resulting in carotid occlusions and seizures as captured on video[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Some of the more common tics include: eye blinking and other vision irregularities, facial grimacing, shoulder shrugging, and head or shoulder jerking.[healthcare.utah.edu]

  • Tic Disorder

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most prevalent of the comorbid psychiatric disorders that complicate tic disorders.[cochrane.org] […] absence seizures (multiplicity of seizure types).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This could include eye blinking, facial grimacing, shoulder shrugging, and head or shoulder jerking.[gracepointwellness.org]

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

    With higher doses, symptoms can progress to sweating, tremors, confusion, hyperactivity, seizures, stroke, cardiac arrhythmias, and sudden death.[usmleforum.com] Motor signs included grand mal seizures, generalized rigidity, localized dystonias, catalepsy, and athetosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A patient with PCP intoxication may exhibit motor disturbances such as facial grimacing, tremor, and catalepsy.[theravive.com]

  • Tetanus

    TeNT-induced impairment of inhibitory input leads to hyperactivity of motor neurons, causing spastic paralysis, which is the hallmark of tetanus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The infant recovered, with no seizures by the 16th day from admission, and was off the ventilator by the 18th day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tetanus was diagnosed on the basis of clinical course and symptoms such as trismus, facial grimacing, and stiffness of the masseter and neck muscles.[doi.org]

  • Tics

    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most prevalent of the comorbid psychiatric disorders that complicate tic disorders.[cochrane.org] However, “focal or multifocal seizures without alteration of consciousness could be mistaken for tics – one example would be myoclonic seizures in which there is a sudden[neurologyadvisor.com] Motor tics can be of an endless variety and may include such movements as hand-clapping, neck stretching, mouth movements, head, arm or leg jerks, and facial grimacing.[sciencedaily.com]
