  • Transient Ischemic Attack

  • Stroke

    Specifically, this exploratory study investigates changes in gait pattern among stroke patients with hemiparesis or hemiplegia during gait recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] How are strokes diagnosed?[medlineplus.gov] […] movement 0—Normal 1—Minor facial weakness 2—Partial facial weakness 3—Complete unilateral palsy 5 Motor function (arm) 0—No drift a.[doi.org]

  • Reversible Ischemic Neurologic Deficit

    […] deficit (RIND) or stroke is still controversial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thus, a great variety of manifestations have been observed in different cases, including transient hemiplegia, hemianopsia, monoplegia, aphasia, paresthesia, localized convulsive[annals.org] If the carotid and cerebral arteries are affected, patients can suffer blindness in one eye, hemiplegia, hemianesthesia, speech disorders, and mental derangement.[ncpnanda.top]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    Our first case demonstrates the more common presentation with acute hemiplegia caused by cerebral infarction and the second case a transient ischemic attack manifested by[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All were extensively investigated and no other causes for stroke were found.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 28-year-old man presented with transient speech disturbance and right hemiplegia. Computed tomography of the brain revealed a low-density area in the right cerebellum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    In this case, we present a patient who presented to the pediatric emergency department with new-onset seizure and hemiplegia 2 days after a roller-coaster ride.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we present the case of a 64 year-old male whose prostate carcinoma's metastasis mimicked a subdural hematoma, and he suffered a middle cerebral artery stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Historical note and terminology In 1657 Wepfer described the presence of a "bloody cyst" in the subdural space of an elderly man postmortem who had developed an aphasia and hemiplegia[medlink.com]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    […] microangiopathic changes Arterial hypertension and increasing age are the most important risk factors Clinical features Lucid interval , then loss of consciousness Headache Hemiplegia[amboss.com] A 71-year-old male presented with sudden neck pain followed by left-sided hemiparesis, and was believed to have had a stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Left hemiplegia was deteted. Right fronto-parietal trephine cranitomy with evacuation of extradural haematoma was done under general anaesthesia.[neurologyindia.com]

  • Bell's Palsy

    Periodic paralysis ( Hypokalemic, Hyperkalemic ) - Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome Cerebral palsy والمتلازمات paralytic الأخرى Cerebral palsy - Paralysis - Spastic diplegia - Hemiplegia[marefa.org] The disorder, which is not related to stroke, is the most common cause of facial paralysis.[web.archive.org] : eg, abrupt onset with complete, unilateral facial weakness at 24 to 72 hours, and, on the affected side, numbness or pain around the ear, a reduction in taste, and hypersensitivity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    Together with Stroke Syndromes, it emphasizes pattern recognition in the location and diagnosis of stroke.[books.google.ro] The postoperative course was uneventful, but a slight left hemiplegia remained at discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The common clinical presentations included headache (61.7%), fever (50.6%), and hemiplegia (34.6%). Eleven patients (13.6%) were dead at hospital discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    If you think it's a stroke, dial 999 immediately and ask for an ambulance.[nhs.uk] Loss of brain cells, which happens if you suffer a stroke, can affect your ability to think clearly. Brain tumors can also press on nerves and affect brain function.[icdlist.com] DIAGNOSIS DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS • Stroke • Abscess • Metastatic tumors WORKUP • Thorough history and physical examination to help resolve differential diagnosis • MRI of[encyclopedia.lubopitko-bg.com]

  • Botulism

    […] must be careful when diagnosing botulism because it may cause symptoms similar to diseases such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome, and strokes[aanem.org] At first, hospital staff thought she had suffered a stroke because of her slurred speech and muscle weakness.[web.archive.org] […] diagnosis of botulism can be based on the patient’s history and physical examination; however, the signs and symptoms may mimic other diseases like Guillain-Barré syndrome, stroke[symptoma.com]
