  • Stroke

    Awakening with or experiencing the abrupt onset of focal neurologic deficits is the hallmark of ischemic stroke diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CT-guided stereotactic aspiration of intracerebral hematoma—result of a hematoma-lysis method using urokinase. Appl Neurophysiol. 1985 ; 48 :427–430.[doi.org] Twenty patients (40%) had a single seizure, and most seizures (34, or 68%) were simple partial seizures or partial seizures with 2 generalization.[doi.org]

    Spinal SAH alone rarely causes focal neurologic deficit.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with an intracerebral hematoma (ICH) shows an unfavorable prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] None of the patients with epilepsy after discharge had electrographic seizures while hospitalized.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Headaches are a typical presenting manifestation of CVT, while focal neurological deficits, seizures , and increased intracranial pressure may develop as the disease progresses[amboss.com] When the hemorrhagic component of the infarction is large, it may look like any other intracerebral hematoma with surrounding vasogenic edema.[radiologyassistant.nl] More than a third of them sustains seizures, with generalized seizures occurring more frequently than focal seizures. Many patients present with hemiparesis.[symptoma.com]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Neurological deficit and progressive, focal, or general headaches (in large tumours) are common. Tumours may also produce visible bony growth.[bestpractice.bmj.com] Seizures, focal or generalized, may be the earliest expression of a brain tumor.[emedicine.medscape.com] Symptoms of a convexity meningioma are seizures, focal neurological deficits, or headaches.[brighamandwomens.org]

    Patients most commonly present with seizures, headaches, and focal neurologic deficits (depending on where the tumor is).[pathologystudent.com] […] sudden increase or decrease a feeling of nausea and the urge to vomit; hypertension loss of coordination blurred vision; changeable mood and changes in behavior; epileptic seizures[back.vsebolezni.com] Seizures or ‘fits’ Lower grade tumours (Grades I and II) present more often with seizures or fits.[nbt.nhs.uk]

  • Brain Laceration

    Any focal neurological deficit since the injury. Amnesia for events before or after the injury. Persistent headache since the injury.[patient.info] Emergency surgery to relieve growing pressure before brain herniates. l Subdural hematoma - front/back blow causes slower bleed over days/wks l Intracerebral hematoma - bruising[uni.edu] Since then, Wells said, her son has had brain surgery and multiple seizures.[wcpo.com]

  • Malignant Glioma

    Focal neurological deficits are rare but can occur.[doi.org] A tolerable rash was seen in 2 patients, anaphylaxis in 1 patient, isolated seizure in 1 patient, and seizure and cerebral edema in 1 patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No serious adverse effects, such as brain edema, hemorrhage or seizure were observed, nor systemic toxicities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Six percent of patients presented with radiculating pain without any focal neurological deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The procedure was uneventful, however, the patient developed a postoperative large acute left temporoparietal intracerebral hematoma associated with an ipsilateral acute subdural[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Exclusion criteria History of pre‐existing seizures.[doi.org]
