53 Possible Causes for Frontal Sharp-and-Slow-Waves

  • Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To study seizure control and rates of foetal malformation in pregnancies of women with epilepsy treated with antiepileptic drug polytherapy. METHODS: The use of conventional statistical methods to analyse the Australian Pregnancy Register records of 1810 pregnancies in women with epilepsy, 508 treated[…][]

  • Ohtahara Syndrome

    B, Interictal EEG of patient 1, showing an asynchronous pattern, with high-voltage slow wave bursts mixed with spikes and sharp waves, and a low-voltage suppression background[] C, Brain MRI of patient 1, demonstrating lateral ventricular dilatation with a frontal dominancy, suggesting a small caudate nucleus, thin corpus callosum (not shown), and[]

  • 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,[…][]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    ), status epilepticus or runs of 2–3 s of polyphasic slow/sharp waves (subacute sclerosing panencephalitis).[] These include periodic lateralising epileptiform discharges in encephalitis, frontal intermittent delta activity in toxic–metabolic or structural abnormalities (if asymmetrical[]

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis is a paraneoplastic encephalitis characterised by psychiatric features, involuntary movement, and autonomic instability. Various EEG findings in patients with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis have been reported, however, the correlation between the EEG findings and clinical course of[…][]

  • Early Myoclonic Encephalopathy

    Epileptic encephalopathy with suppression-burst in electroencephalography (EEG) can evolve into a few types of epileptic syndromes. We present here an unusual case of early myoclonic encephalopathy that evolved into migrating partial seizures in infancy. A female neonate initially had erratic myoclonus movements,[…][]

  • Fragile X Syndrome

    Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition caused by a mutation of the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene on the X chromosome. Fragile X syndrome in males is usually more severe than in females and males are never asymptomatic. This is because males have only one X chromosome (unlike females that have 2[…][]

  • Status Epilepticus

    In the control group (n 185), focal/generalized slowing was seen in 43% (n 80) and slowing with some spike/sharp wave activity in 2% (n 4). 4. Discussion 4.1.[] […] focal onset and 29% (n 19) a generalized onset; twenty-five percent (n 16) showed a periodic pattern; focal seizures originated from the temporal areas (55%) and from the frontal[]
