1,057 Possible Causes for Hydrocephalus, Obstructive Hydrocephalus, Seizure

  • Pineal Gland Cyst

    Postmortem examination revealed a glial cyst of the pineal gland and evidence of chronic obstructive hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a new complication of intracystic hemorrhage in a large pineal gland cyst in a 40-year-old man with new onset seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] was once believed that smaller cysts (less than 5.0 mm) were usually asymptomatic, but for larger cysts (greater than 5.0 mm), symptoms could include headache, unexpected seizures[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    An adult with asymptomatic Dandy-Walker malformation without hydrocephalus was studied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 19-year-old female was referred with seizures and the Dandy-Walker syndrome. We continued the medical workup and also treated the patient with psychotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subependymal Giant Cell Astrocytoma

    Communicating hydrocephalus is noted. The cerebrospinal fluid protein level was 737 mg/dl.[asianjns.org] Tumors are also removed in cases where a patient is suffering from a high seizure burden.[en.wikipedia.org] Subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGCA) is a benign, slow-growing glial tumor that manifests with signs and symptoms of obstructive hydrocephalus most often in adolescent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hydrocephalus

    Hydrocephalus requires regular and long term follow-up.[symptoma.com] She remained seizure-free until age five months, when seizures reappeared in the context of increasing head size and irritability.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[doi.org]

  • Ventricular Hemorrhage

    Clamping the LD was performed every second day and development of hydrocephalus was monitored by CT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The third was admitted three days after birth with seizures and a tense fontanelle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] METHODS: Patients with intracerebral hemorrhage, severe IVH, and obstructive hydrocephalus with the need for external ventricular drainage were treated with IVF through external[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vein of Galen Aneurysm

    Abstract Aneurysm of the vein of Galen is a rare cause of hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report on a 65-year-old man who experienced a generalized tonic-clonic seizure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 64-year-old man presented with symptoms of obstructive hydrocephalus secondary to a vein of Galen aneurysm associated with a dural arteriovenous malformation and straight[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    It manifests as a form of paroxysmal hypertension, fever, tachycardia, tachypnea, pupillary dilation, agitation and extensor posturing after traumatic brain injury, hydrocephalus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures, focal or generalized, may be the earliest expression of a brain tumor.[emedicine.medscape.com] Symptoms, as a result of a mass effect from the tumour or due to obstructive hydrocephalus, include morning headaches, nausea, vomiting, diplopia (a manifestation of sixth[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Meningeal Tuberculosis

    The management of hydrocephalus can include medical therapy with dehydrating agents and steroids for patients in good grades and those with communicating hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures are commonly observed in children. Without treatment the disease progresses rapidly which may lead to coma and death of the patient.[tandurust.com] Basal meningitis accounts for the frequent dysfunction of cranial nerves (CNs) III, VI, and VII, eventually leading to obstructive hydrocephalus from obstruction of basilar[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    KEYWORDS: Cerebral ventriculomegaly; Congenital hydrocephalus; Intracranial hypertension; Newborn; Obstructive hydrocephalus; Subdural hematoma; Ventricular atrium diverticulum[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Exclusion criteria History of pre‐existing seizures.[doi.org] hydrocephalus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurocysticercosis

    Intraventricular cysts or arachnoiditis usually cause hydrocephalus in neurocysticercosis but craniocervical junction cysts causing obstructive hydrocephalus are rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Seizures are the commonest manifestation of brain parenchymal cysticercosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Especially, fourth ventricular cysts carry the risk of obstructive hydrocephalus and brainstem compression and therefore should be extirpated completely.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
