7,911 Possible Causes for Facial Grimacing, Occipital Focal Spikes, Seizure

  • West Syndrome

    On the tenth day of treatment, he developed frequent partial seizures, characterized by being motionless during the seizure with eye deviation to the right.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Facial grimacing, repetitive mouth opening, adduction and abduction of upper and lower extremities, and periodical strabismus in different combinations were observed in all[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] grimacing; or other subtle seizures.[cdkl5.com]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Differential diagnosis Differential diagnosis includes other idiopathic focal childhood epilepsies (benign childhood occipital epilepsy, Panayiotopoulos type and Gastaut type[orpha.net] Therapy is often unnecessary and seizures spontaneously end at puberty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Differential diagnosis Occipital spikes, like other focal spikes, can exist without clinical epilepsy. They can also be noted in children with visual impairment.[emedicine.com]

  • Epilepsy

    Rask and Fernando Torres, Clinical Manifestations in Children with Occipital Spike‐Wave Paroxysms, Epilepsia, 33, 4, (667-674), (2005). R. J.[doi.org] 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]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    The EEG signature of IGE is bisynchronous, symmetric, and generalized spike-wave complex; although focal, irregular, and so called "fragments" of discharges are not uncommon[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]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Response to valproate therapy of rotatory seizures was good.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures were documented with video-electroencephalography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thyroxine lowers the seizure threshold in experimental animals and humans.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Benign Rolandic epilepsy benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes benign focal epilepsy of childhood: Epilepsy characterized by partial (focal) seizures, often[childneurologyfoundation.org] The diagnostic criteria for BAFME were the presence of infrequent generalized tonic-clonic seizures, myoclonus or myoclonic seizures, and autosomal dominant inheritance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Focal seizures can spread and become bilateral tonic-clonic seizures. Generalized Seizures With generalized seizures, most or all of the brain is involved.[mountsinai.org]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    Photic stimulation is a recognized cortical precipitant of GSW ( Niedermeyer, 1996 ) and focal occipital spike and slow wave ( Ricci and Vigevano, 1993 ).[academic.oup.com] Ten patients (30.3 %) were seizure free in the last 12 months of their follow-up and 23 (69.6 %) patients reported at least one seizure of any type.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The age at seizure onset, onset seizure type, family history of epilepsy, status epilepticus in history, medication history, and the rate of seizure control were studied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
