63 Possible Causes for Hypersalivation, Memory Impairment, Myoclonic Jerking

  • Dementia

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

  • Eastern Equine Encephalitis

    He recovered well with mildly impaired memory but no other cognitive deficits.[]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

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

  • 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[] Neuropsychological findings suggest that the patients had notable impairments on visual memory tasks, especially in comparison with verbal memory.[] The seizures included mainly autonomic symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, pallor, mydriasis, urinary and fecal incontinence, and rarely hypersalivation.[]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    He developed marked rigidity, myoclonic jerks, and startle myoclonus. He was then sent for a brain MRI.[] His remote memory was relatively intact. On discharge, Mr.[] […] 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[]

  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies

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

  • 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.[] The main characteristics of mental deterioration are reported as apathy, memory disorders, impaired visuomotor speed, and perseverance.[] Mood changes, sedation, ataxia, and hypersalivation, well-known complications of other AEDs, were not observed.[]

  • 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[] Working memory is usually impaired, whereas long-term memory remains intact ( 8 ).[] There is often a history of loss of language and temporo-spatial skills, hyperactivity, short-term memory deficits and behavioural problems.[]

  • Limbic Encephalitis

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

  • Phencyclidine Intoxication

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