61 Possible Causes for Focal Continuous Abnormality

  • Epilepsy

    Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which a person has repeated seizures over time. Seizures are episodes of uncontrolled and abnormal firing of brain cells that may cause changes in attention or behavior. Epilepsy occurs when changes in the brain cause it to be too excitable or irritable. As a result, the brain sends[…][]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Continuum (Minneap Minn). 2015 Apr;21(2 Neuro-oncology):480-6. doi: 10.1212/01.CON.0000464183.35322.5f. Abstract Neurologists are often on the front lines of diagnosis for primary and metastatic brain tumors. Patients with brain tumors typically have multiple comorbidities and pain generators beyond headache,[…][]

  • Brain Abscess

    If the EEG is abnormal, anticonvulsant therapy should be continued.[] Anticonvulsant therapy is continued for at least 3 months after resolution of the abscess, and decisions regarding withdrawal are then based on the EEG.[] In addition to surgical drainage and antibiotic therapy, patients should receive prophylactic anticonvulsant therapy because of the high risk ( 35%) of focal or generalized[]

  • Musculoskeletal Lower Back Pain

    Acute Low Back Pain: Indications for Specialty Care Referral Focal neurologic signs with abnormal imaging studies (urgent consult if worsening) – Orthopedics Spine referral[] Objectives If acute low back pain has not improved in 2 weeks: re-evaluate for “red flags”, change NSAID, and refer to Physical Therapy for evaluation and treatment while continuing[]

  • Stroke

    […] or mass effect, but reactivity and persistence of focal abnormalities (continuous versus intermittent) were significantly better indicators of damage degree.[] In an EEG and computed tomography scan correlation study, Schaul et al. 15 showed that field, amplitude and frequency of focal slow waves do not distinguish lesion size, density[]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    , and those who continue to have abnormal EEG results while on medication.[] However, the odds of successfully stopping medication are not as good for people with a family history of epilepsy, those who need multiple medications, those with focal seizures[]

  • Rotator Cuff Tear

    Although there are common indications for both imaging methods, such as evaluation of the rotator cuff and other focal tendon abnormalities, MRI continues to be the standard[]

  • Meningitis

    In this population with persistent symptoms or signs, some authorities have offered surgical resection to patients with focal pulmonary disease, rather than either continuing[] The other role for surgery in the immunocompetent patient population regards those patients who have persistent focal radiographic abnormalities despite conventional antifungal[]

  • Histiocytoid Cardiomyopathy

    Sixteen patients had yellowish nodules on the endocardium, epicardium, and/or valves; the other 37 had foci of abnormalCONTINUE READING[] This disorder occurs in infants and small children and is characterized clinically by severe and often fatal arrhythmias and morphologically by focal collections of altered[]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Scanning electron photomicrographs have demonstrated surface folds and focal loss of endothelial cells of mitral valve leaflets, and these surface abnormalities may predispose[] Continuous pressure and stress due to left ventricular systole on the mitral valve leaflets and chordae tendineae contribute to the gradual progression of these histologic[]
