63 Possible Causes for Hypersalivation, Memory Impairment, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Dementia

    The mechanisms underlying age-associated memory impairment are, however, not understood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We aimed to identify predictors of misclassification by 3 brief cognitive assessments; the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), Memory Impairment Screen (MIS) and animal[cp.neurology.org] Here we show that memory disturbances in the aging brain of the mouse are associated with altered hippocampal chromatin plasticity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Eastern Equine Encephalitis

    He recovered well with mildly impaired memory but no other cognitive deficits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

    KEYWORDS: confabulation; encephalitis; episodic memory impairment; naming deficit[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He developed hypersalivation, speech and swallowing difficulties within 30days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neuropsychological assessment results were consistent with the location of damage, with profound memory impairment and mildly impaired naming, but normal visuospatial and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Panayiotopoulos Syndrome

    […] seizures: loss of consciousness with severe, rhythmic myoclonic jerks.  Myoclonias are bilateral and rhythmic, maximally involving proximal limb muscles, and may be associated[slideshare.net] Neuropsychological findings suggest that the patients had notable impairments on visual memory tasks, especially in comparison with verbal memory.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The seizures included mainly autonomic symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, pallor, mydriasis, urinary and fecal incontinence, and rarely hypersalivation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    He developed marked rigidity, myoclonic jerks, and startle myoclonus. He was then sent for a brain MRI.[n.neurology.org] His remote memory was relatively intact. On discharge, Mr.[doi.org] […] the patient presented with a deterioration of his general health which had gradually taken hold, with altered consciousness accompanied by generalised muscle rigidity and hypersalivation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies

    Several days after admission, she gradually showed focal myoclonic jerks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This result indicates that CA1 may be more functionally relevant than CA2 in the context of memory impairment in DLB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition to gastrointestinal (GI) side effects, hypersalivation, postural hypotension, and falls may increase when cholinesterase-inhibiting drugs are used.[web.archive.org]

  • Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome

    In such cases, massive myoclonic jerks, myoclonic-atonic attacks, as well as atonic seizures may occur, though much less frequent and severe than the other manifestations.[epilepsyontario.org] The main characteristics of mental deterioration are reported as apathy, memory disorders, impaired visuomotor speed, and perseverance.[emedicine.medscape.com] Mood changes, sedation, ataxia, and hypersalivation, well-known complications of other AEDs, were not observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy with Continuous Spike-and-Slow-Waves during Sleep

    Many children will have absence (blank) seizures, some myoclonic (jerk) seizures and others will have focal (partial) motor seizures (seizures involving jerks of one side[epilepsy.org.uk] Working memory is usually impaired, whereas long-term memory remains intact ( 8 ).[tidsskriftet.no] There is often a history of loss of language and temporo-spatial skills, hyperactivity, short-term memory deficits and behavioural problems.[acnr.co.uk]

  • Limbic Encephalitis

    This time, he presented to our ward with rapidly progressive memory decline and myoclonic jerks in his limbs for two weeks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subclinical seizure patterns and memory impairment persisted over one to two years after clinical seizure remission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One described hypersalivation.[doi.org]

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

    jerks.[merckmanuals.com] […] judgment belligerence aggressiveness agitation impulsiveness and unpredictability schizophrenic-like psychoses hallucinations of sight, sound, or touch memory impairment[minddisorders.com] Profuse diaphoresis, hypersalivation, bronchospasm, and urinary retention occurred in less than 5%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
