292 Possible Causes for Generalized Motor Seizure, Hemiparesis, Poor Outcome

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A 73-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital for sudden headache and subsequent left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] poor outcome of patient with aSAH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] often called a “thunderclap headache”), nausea, confusion, altered consciousness, seizure, visual disturbances, cardiac arrhythmias, and focal neurological deficits such as hemiparesis[link.springer.com]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our case had a poor outcome, unlike the majority of previously reported cases. Copyright 2018 National Stroke Association. Published by Elsevier Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Serum S100 has been associated with poor outcome after SAH [ 29 ].[karger.com]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Meningitis may be localized for a time to one hemisphere or the other, cause jacksonian convulsions, hemiparesis, or even hemianopia.[atsu.edu] Five of 15 variables tested were strongly associated with poor outcome (CSF culture positivity, CSF white blood cell count, hemoglobin, Glasgow Coma Scale, and pulse rate)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Later symptoms may include hydrocephalus (accumulation of fluid in the brain cavity), paralysis of one side of the body (hemiparesis), hearing loss, or other neurological[rarediseases.org]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    An 81-year-old man, presenting with left hemiparesis, underwent craniotomy for right organized CSH after 2 burr-hole surgeries.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recurrent cases presented a poor outcome (P 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] present the case of a male patient diagnosed with stage IV prostate adenocarcinoma with bone metastasis, who is admitted for left hemisphere subdural hematoma with right hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    The patient presented with right-sided homonymous hemianopsia and right hemiparesis. Emergent surgical drainage was performed and antibiotics were administered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract BACKGROUND Aspergillus terreus is an evolving opportunistic pathogen, and patients with A. terreus often have poor outcomes due to its intrinsic resistance to several[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] here brain abscesses caused by Nocardia beijingensis in a 59-year-old-Thai male with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection presenting with progressive right sided hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sturge-Weber Syndrome

    […] angioma (LA) Medically refractive seizures Relapsing or permanent motor deficits Headaches or mild trauma associated with transient motor deficits Evidence of progressive[emedicine.com] The patient presented to the ED with acute confusion, eye deviation, and right hemiparesis similar to two previous admissions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bilateral brain malformations (leptomeningeal angioma), early onset of seizures, and difficult to control seizures are predictors of poor outcome.[epilepsy.com]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

    In children, the most common type of HSV is type 1, and generally affects the frontotemporal lobes of the brain affecting cognition and motor function.[encephalitis.info] She recovered and could speak short sentences, but dysphasia and right hemiparesis remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For the analysis of prognostic factors, outcome at 6 months was the main end point and was considered to be binary (favorable outcome vs. poor outcome).[cid.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    After 7 to 19 days, patients suddenly deteriorated, developing headache, fever, a decreased level of consciousness, brainstem signs, or hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Variable outcome was classified into good or poor (neurological handicap or death).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No significant differences were identified for hospital course or outcome, with the exception that a greater proportion of patients had subdural empyema and hemiparesis in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    The authors describe three young women with systemic lupus erythematosus and hemiparesis who had major cerebral artery stenosis or occlusion documened by angiography.[glosbe.com] SLE can be fatal with nephritis, in particular, predicting a poor outcome for patients.[experts.umich.edu] Taddio et al concluded that presence of atypical manifestations of pediatric SLE at presentation and early kidney disease correlated with poor outcome.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Subdural Hematoma

    An 87-year-old woman presented with an atypical case of acute subdural hematoma (ASDH) manifesting as disturbance of consciousness and left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Six patients had good outcome at last follow up and 27 patients had poor outcome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hemiparesis may be mild or well compensated as weakness occurs gradually. Many patients experience hemiparesis as gait imbalance, or veering to one side.[neurosurgerybasics.com]
