131 Possible Causes for Facial Grimacing, Seizure, Tachycardia

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    Tachycardia and bradycardia, blood pressure lability, hyperthermia, hypoventilation, and/or apnea were each reported in most patients with autonomic instability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    Ictal tachycardia was documented with EEG-EKG recording in the latter patient, prior to right anterior temporal lobectomy and amygdalohippocampectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Pasquale Parisi, Commentary on ictal epileptic tachycardia and bradycardia, Epilepsia, 51, 8, (1643), (2010).[doi.org] Therapy is often unnecessary and seizures spontaneously end at puberty.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] ie, the patient persists in what he is doing) or de novo, such as lip smacking or swallowing (60%) Absence with autonomic components (eg, pupillary dilatation, flushing, tachycardia[emedicine.com]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    The junctional tachycardia and other electrocardiogram abnormalities resolved during follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For problems with abnormal movements or abnormal behaviors, medicines often used to treat seizures may be prescribed.[nlm.nih.gov] The patient's facial expression alternates between frowning, grinning and grimacing. His tongue darts in and out of his mouth.[icd9data.com]

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

    Fever, tachycardia and hypertension were frequent findings among the 25 patients with rhabdomyolysis and all had leukocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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

    […] opisthotonos (severe spasm in which the back arches and the head bends back and heels flex toward the back) autonomic disturbance (onset after spasms, lasts 1-2 weeks) — tachycardia[lifeinthefastlane.com] 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]

  • Wilson Disease

    Most frequent findings seen were T wave abnormality in 18 patients (35.2%) followed by sinus tachycardia and sinus bradycardia in 12 and 8 patients respectively.[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] A and B, Nonthoracotomy ICD system placed in a 39-year-old man with inoperable pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect who had ventricular tachycardia with syncope[dx.doi.org]

  • Black Widow Spider Bite

    The widow venom, a powerful neurotoxin known as a-latrotoxin, causes muscle pain, diaphoresis, tachycardia, flushing, and hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In some instances, seizures and shock can develop. Symptoms peak two to three hours after onset but can last several days.[livestrong.com] Symptoms Flushed sweating face Contorted, Painful grimace Conjunctivitis Trismus of masseters Facial edema Neurologic Symptoms Headache (27%) Restlessness Paresthesia s Seizure[fpnotebook.com]

  • Japanese Encephalitis

    […] poliomyelitis was initially considered due to the clinical features of aseptic meningitis, respiratory paralysis, pharyngeal paralysis with pooling secretions in the pharynx, tachycardia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSION: Seizure and behavioral abnormality are common features in HSE whereas focal reflex loss is commoner in JE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Figure 4 Facial grimacing in a Vietnamese boy with Japanese encephalitis.

  • Tetanus Neonatorum

    Short incubation period, short period of onset, low birth weight, presence of fever and tachycardia were associated with a poor prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] had to be differentiated between MSUD and other metabolic disorders and neonatal infections (especially neonatal tetanus because of severe opisthotonos) and generalized seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] grimacingFacial grimacing Muscle spasmMuscle spasm Poor suckPoor suck 16.[slideshare.net]
