215 Possible Causes for Hippocampal Atrophy

  • Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome

    We report a previously healthy 5-year-old child who developed hippocampal atrophy by day 37 of his illness.[] Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the chronic phase was normal in three patients and showed mild diffuse cortical atrophy and/or mild hippocampal atrophy or sclerosis in[] Atrophy in Febrile-Infection Related Epilepsy Syndrome (FIRES). ( 23400244 ) Byler D.L....Kanekar S. 2013 29 Febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome without detectable[]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    We describe a case of left temporal lobe epilepsy without hippocampal atrophy. A 31-year-old woman presented with typical symptoms of complex partial seizures.[] Patients with bilateral hippocampal atrophy (BHA) in a subgroup suffering from mesial temporal lobe epilepsy represent a therapeutic challenge.[] The patient began to have refractory seizures at the age of 14, and preoperative MRI revealed left amygdala enlargement and left hippocampal atrophy.[]

  • Medial Sclerosis

    Hippocampal atrophy with abnormal T2 hyperintenssity is a diagnostic clue.[] atrophy with increased T 2 -weighted signal on magnetic resonance imaging ( Figure 1 ). 2 , 3 Although mesial temporal sclerosis is generally unilateral, bilateral involvement[] Hippocampal sclerosis without detectable hippocampal atrophy. Neurology 1994 ; 44:42-46.[]

  • Semantic Dementia

    […] episodic memory deficit for patients with extensive hippocampal atrophy.[] […] of temporal lobe or hippocampal atrophy.[] BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Alzheimer's disease (AD) and semantic dementia (SD) have distinct episodic memory profiles despite the hippocampal atrophy that characterizes both diseases[]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Compared with people who did not drink, people who drank moderately showed a three times higher risk of hippocampal atrophy.[] 'Higher risk of hippocampal atrophy' In their study paper, in which they discuss the rationale for their investigation, the researchers explain that a link between heavy drinking[] The researchers also found that, compared with abstinence, light drinking - defined as no more than 7 units per week - offered no protective effect against hippocampal atrophy[]

  • Insulin Resistance

  • Neurosyphilis

    Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed cortical atrophy with noticeable bilateral hippocampal atrophy.[] Few cases have so far described bilateral hippocampal atrophy mimicking Alzheimer’s disease in neurosyphilis.[] Abstract Background This article reports a rare case of active neurosyphilis in a man with mild to moderate dementia and marked hippocampal atrophy, mimicking early onset[]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    These associations were driven mostly by the amount of cortical rather than hippocampal atrophy.[] As previously reported, 26, 35 patients with MCI and hippocampal atrophy have an increased likelihood of developing AD.[] Previous studies 26 suggest that hippocampal atrophy, as measured using MRI, may be a marker for early AD in patients with MCI and may predict a more rapid deterioration to[]

  • Alcohol Dementia

    atrophy than abstainers.[] The results showed heavy alcohol consumption over the 30-year period was associated with increased risk of hippocampal atrophy, a form of brain damage that affects memory[] atrophy than abstainers, and very light drinking (1-6 units a week) conferred no protection relative to abstinence.[]

  • Puerperium
