310 Possible Causes for Hyperglycemia, Nystagmus, Obstructive Hydrocephalus

  • Cerebellar Hemorrhage

    We aimed to determine the association of hyperglycemia on admission with 6-month functional outcome in CH patients.[] Abstract A 63-year-old woman presented with a metastatic focus of papillary thyroid carcinoma in the cerebellopontine angle manifesting as lateral gazing nystagmus and slurred[] The hematoma in the fourth ventricle was gently removed through the hematoma cavity, followed by thorough saline irrigation to release obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    Management of hyperglycemia Admission hyperglycemia is a potent predictor of 30-day mortality in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients with ICH [ 108 ].[] The symptomatology of the cases with saltatory evolution had subacute onset, in 1-3 days, with hypotonia, nystagmus and posture disorders.[] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    Work-Up 10  CBC – R/o severe anemias and leukemias as causes of altered mental status  Blood glucose levels hypoglycemia/ hyperglycemia  O2 Saturation and ABG - Exclude[] An examination revealed spontaneous upbeat nystagmus ( Video 1 ), gaze-evoked nystagmus ( Video 2 ), and gait ataxia. She had no ophthalmoplegia.[] The second case illustrates extensive changes in the thalamus caused by WE, resulting in obstructive hydrocephalus requiring shunting.[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    ., hyperglycemia, weight gain, immunosuppression, gastritis and bowel perforation, insomnia, psychological disturbances).[] […] hemianopia or partial visual field deficits Anosmia may occur with frontal lobe tumors Brainstem and cerebellar tumors induce cranial nerve palsies, ataxia, incoordination, nystagmus[] 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[]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    Treatment of hyperglycemia in ischemic stroke (THIS): a randomized pilot trial. Stroke. 2008 Feb. 39(2):384-9. [Medline]. Bellolio MF, Gilmore RM, Stead LG.[] Remaining 8 patients were also symptomatic for vertigo, but they had spontaneous nystagmus. The latter group was called "disease control."[] Mezzadri JJOtero JMOttino CA Management of 50 spontaneous cerebellar haemorrhages: importance of obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    Effect of hyperglycemia on stroke outcomes. Endocr Pract. 2004;10(suppl 2):34–39. 33. Baird TA, Parsons MW, Phanh T, et al.[] (SN) or direction changed bidirectional gaze-evoked nystagmus (GEN).[] Computed tomography showed cerebellar infarction with obstructive hydrocephalus. External ventricular drainage was performed.[]

  • Listerial Meningitis

    There were no major side-effects of dexamethasone therapy (gastro-intestinal bleeding, hyperglycemia).[] Symptoms such as ataxia, nystagmus, vertigo, facial numbness, dysphagia, persistent hiccuping, and respiratory failure ( 41%) may be present 3.[] A CT scan on admission showed mild dilatation of the lateral ventricles and the temporal horns, but no features suggestive of obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Cerebellar Neoplasm

    ., hyperglycemia, weight gain, immunosuppression, gastritis and bowel perforation, insomnia, psychological disturbances).[] This patient was very unsteady and had strong positional nystagmus due to removal of her cerebellar nodulus.[] Presentation: The most common presentation of posterior fossa tumors in children is symptomatic elevated ICP secondary to obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Furosemide also can lead to gout caused by hyperuricemia, hyperglycemia is also a common side effect.[] […] of the abducting eye, and vertical gaze-evoked nystagmus.[] CT scan revealed acute cerebellar and intraventricular hemorrhage with obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Cerebellar Mass Lesion

    ., hyperglycemia, weight gain, immunosuppression, gastritis and bowel perforation, insomnia, psychological disturbances).[] R beating nystagmus on R gaze. L beating horizontal nystagmus on L gaze, vertical nystagmus on upgaze.[] Abstract Cerebellar masses are a heterogenous group of conditions that can cause compression of the aqueduct or fourth ventricle, resulting in obstructive hydrocephalus, brainstem[]
