3,953 Possible Causes for Focal Polymorphic Delta Slowing, Nystagmus, Obstructive Hydrocephalus

  • Brain Neoplasm

    […] hemianopia or partial visual field deficits Anosmia may occur with frontal lobe tumors Brainstem and cerebellar tumors induce cranial nerve palsies, ataxia, incoordination, nystagmus[emedicine.medscape.com] Symptoms, as a result of a mass effect from the tumour or due to obstructive hydrocephalus, include morning headaches, nausea, vomiting, diplopia (a manifestation of sixth[bestpractice.bmj.com] Brain stem Cranial nerve dysfunction, ataxia, papillary abnormalities, nystagmus, hemiparesis, autonomic dysfunction Table 3.[aafp.org]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    The symptomatology of the cases with saltatory evolution had subacute onset, in 1-3 days, with hypotonia, nystagmus and posture disorders.[medichub.ro] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[doi.org] The rest of 21% of cases had catastrophic clinical findings: bulging anterior fontanelle, dehiscent cranial sutures, projectile vomiting, fixation of pupils, nystagmus, seizures[medichub.ro]

  • Stroke

    In some cases, focal slow activity may presents as focal and irregular slow activity in the delta frequency, receiving the designation of polymorphic delta activity (PDA)[scielo.br] The first patient (female, 50 years old) had dysarthria, nystagmus and trunk ataxia on admission. Her blood alcohol level was 2.3‰.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Obstructive hydrocephalus is also noted, with dilatation of the lateral ventricles, likely due to compression of the foramen of Monroe.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Transient Ischemic Attack

Surg Neurol. 1983 ; 20 : 13–19.[doi.org] Posterior circulation† Nystagmus Vertigo (spinning sensation) Disconjugate gaze If subtle, blurry or double vision Homonymous visual-field cut Inability to see well, especially[aafp.org]

  • Brain Abscess

    The patient may also have spontaneous nystagmus. Dysdiadokinesis is also positive in these patients.[sites.google.com] hydrocephalus will commonly be seen when intraventricular spread has occurred MRI MRI is more sensitive than CT.[radiopaedia.org] Such a direction of nystagmus is particularly of diagnostically valuable when you turn off the maze patient ear.[minclinic.ru]

    Remaining 8 patients were also symptomatic for vertigo, but they had spontaneous nystagmus. The latter group was called "disease control."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mezzadri JJOtero JMOttino CA Management of 50 spontaneous cerebellar haemorrhages: importance of obstructive hydrocephalus.[doi.org] It is important to observe the nystagmus periodically after onset.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Eye movement recordings in two patients with Arnold-Chiari malfomation type 1 showed, in addition to downbeat and gaze evoked nystagmus, intermittent nystagmus of skew.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Variable other central nervous system abnormalities might be present (partial or complete agenesis of the corpus callosum, a small fourth ventricle, obstructive hydrocephalus[orpha.net] It may be associated with stenosis of the aqueduct of Sylvius with obstructive hydrocephalus, and atrophy of the brain tissue.[whonamedit.com]
