65 Possible Causes for Frontal Focal Spikes

  • Epilepsy

    The diagnosis of frontal lobe epilepsy (generalized tonic-clonic seizures secondary to focal impaired awareness seizures and myoclonus) was made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neuroimaging studies were unremarkable and electroencephalograms showed high voltage 200-400uV, 2-2.5 Hz generalized spike-and-waves and polyspikes with alternating frontal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Transient outbreaks of spike-slow complex waves (1-2 s) were also noted in all leads.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate electroencephalographic (EEG) features of benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME). METHODS: We reviewed interictal EEG features in patients with BAFME treated between April 2005 and November 2012 at a tertiary referral center. The diagnostic criteria for BAFME were the presence[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is characterized by seizures, severe cognitive abnormalities, and behavior impairments. These features could evolve over time and get worse, especially when the encephalopathy is pharmacoresistant. Thus, genetic studies should provide a better understanding of infantile epilepsy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Syndrome

Clinical Information A rare autosomal recessive inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the pla2g6 gene. It is[…][icd9data.com]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    The term idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is used to designate a group of epileptic conditions with a genetic etiology. Patients with IGE have otherwise normal development, don't present with any structural brain damage and usually have a family history of epilepsy. Clinical manifestations of IGE depend on its[…][symptoma.com]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    Interictal and ictal EEG is characterized by focal generalized spike-wave discharge occasionally prominent in the frontal region.[1pdf.net] Focal discharges were more frequent in the frontal regions 19,25. They may be isolated spikes, sharp waves, slow waves, or spike-and-wave complexes 7,16,21.[scielo.br] In addition, the clinician may find slow sharp waves, bursts of slow waves, groups of sharp waves, groups of spikes, and a fast rhythm 25.[scielo.br]

  • Organic Brain Syndrome

    An organic brain syndrome ( OBS ), also known as an organic brain disease/disorder ( OBD ), an organic mental syndrome ( OMS ), or an organic mental disorder ( OMD ), is a syndrome or disorder of mental function whose cause is alleged to be known as organic ( physiologic ) rather than purely of the mind. These[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Encephalopathy

    Encephalopathy (; from Ancient Greek: ἐνκέφαλος "brain" πάθος "suffering") means any disorder or disease of the brain, especially chronic degenerative conditions. In modern usage, encephalopathy does not refer to a single disease, but rather to a syndrome of overall brain dysfunction; this syndrome can have[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Uremic Encephalopathy

    Uremic Encephalopathy (UE) is a neurological complication associated with acute or chronic renal failure. Imaging findings of UE may present involvement of the basal ganglia, cortical or subcortical regions, and white matter. We report a rare case of UE caused by neurogenic bladder with isolated brainstem involvement[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
