42 Possible Causes for Generalized Slow Delta Activities

  • Hypoglycemia

    Disease / Cause Remarks Insulinoma 1. mostly benign insulin-secreting tumors of the pancreas 2. malignant insulinoma (10-15%) 3. insulinoma in familial multiple endocrine neoplasia type I ( MEN I / menin gene) - pancreatic, parathyroid, and pituitary endocrine tumors non-insulinoma pancreatogenic hypoglycemia-syndrome[…][web.archive.org]

  • 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]

  • Hyponatremia

    Hyponatremia Other names Hyponatraemia, low blood sodium, hyponatræmia Sodium Specialty Internal medicine Symptoms Decreased ability to think, headaches, nausea, poor balance, confusion, seizures, coma [1] [2] Types Low volume, normal volume, high volume [3] Diagnostic method Serum sodium 135 mmol/L [2] Differential[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) manifests as memory impairment in the absence of dementia and progresses to Alzheimer's disease (AD) at a rate of around 15% per annum, versus 1–2% in the general population. It thus constitutes a primary target for investigation of early markers of AD. Language deficits occur early[…][dx.doi.org]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Cushing Syndrome

    The main purpose was to assess the incidence and late outcome of Cushing's syndrome, particularly in Cushing's disease. Information for all patients diagnosed with Cushing's syndrome during an 11-yr period in Denmark was retrieved. The incidence was 1.2-1.7/million.yr (Cushing's disease), 0.6/million.yr (adrenal adenoma)[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    Lancet Infect Dis. 2016 Nov;16(11):e261-e266. doi: 10.1016/S1473-3099(16)30162-1. Epub 2016 Sep 16.

  • Hydrocephalus

    Hydrocephalus is a buildup of fluid inside the skull that leads to brain swelling. Hydrocephalus means "water on the brain." Hydrocephalus is due to a problem with the flow of the fluid that surrounds the brain. This fluid is called the cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF. The fluid surrounds the brain and spinal cord and helps[…][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.
