705 Possible Causes for Generalized Rhythmic Slowing, Generalized Slow Delta Activities, Spasticity - Hyperreflexia

  • Hyponatremia

    They are primarily central nervous system (CNS) manifestations, such as irritability, restlessness, lethargy, muscular twitching, spasticity and hyperreflexia, all of which[aafp.org]

  • Hydrocephalus

  • Hypoglycemia

    BACKGROUND: Postprandial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (PHH) is an increasingly recognized complication of gastric bypass surgery in obese adults, distinct from the "dumping syndrome". CASE PRESENTATION: Upon birth, primary repair of esophageal atresia was performed, and at the age of 14 months definite esophageal[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Thalamic lesions generally produced focal or unilateral delta activity, but the slow activity varied in time of onset, amplitude and degree of focality 16.[scielo.br] In general, fast-growing tumors, such as glioblastoma multiforme or metastatic brain tumors, are associated with focal slow activity occurring in the delta frequency 16.[scielo.br] They found that cortical gray matter lesions alone did not produce slow activity, probably because the pure cortical lesions presumably destroy the neuronal generators located[scielo.br]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Abstract The prevalence of dementia in the Western world in people over the age of 60 has been estimated to be greater than 5%, about two-thirds of which are due to Alzheimer’s disease 1, 2, 3, 4. The age-specific prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease nearly doubles every 5 years after age 65, leading to a[…][oadoi.org]

    OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence and describe the importance of alcohol screening for all patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and examine the relationship between gender, age, Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), emergent decompressive craniectomy, Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) from[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome involves a step-wise approach and establishing the cause can be challenging. Several pathogenic mechanisms have been proposed for glucocorticoid-induced hypertension, including a functional mineralocorticoid excess state, upregulation of the renin angiotensin system, and deleterious[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Consensus treatment for herpetic meningoencephalitis is intravenous aciclovir but no guidelines are available for alternative treatment in case of renal failure induced by aciclovir. We report to the best of our knowledge, the first case of herpetic meningoencephalitis treated with success by ganciclovir.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Encephalopathy

    In the cases of encephalopathy, EEG can register generalized slowing or suppression of the EEG reactivity, loss of fast rhythm with occurrence of diffuse slow activity (theta[neurologyindia.com] […] and delta), presence of particular EEG patterns (focal or generalized), intermittent activity suppression, or an electrocortical silence.
