43 Possible Causes for Intracerebral Hematoma, Pseudodementia, Seizure

  • Acute Amphetamine Intoxication

    Liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry (determined presence) of amphetamine within an intracerebral hematoma that had persisted for 13 days.[idmu.co.uk] Benzodiazepines are the preferred initial treatment for CNS excitation, seizures, tachycardia, and hypertension.[merckmanuals.com] […] threshold and altering thermoregulation. [29] Of all neuroleptic drugs, however, haloperidol rarely is associated with seizures (minimal effects on seizure threshold).[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Stroke

    CT-guided stereotactic aspiration of intracerebral hematoma—result of a hematoma-lysis method using urokinase. Appl Neurophysiol. 1985 ; 48 :427–430.[doi.org] Twenty patients (40%) had a single seizure, and most seizures (34, or 68%) were simple partial seizures or partial seizures with 2 generalization.[doi.org] Estimated incidence rates of first silent MRI cerebral hemorrhage ranged from 180 in the ages 30-39 to 6,900 at age 85.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    When the hemorrhagic component of the infarction is large, it may look like any other intracerebral hematoma with surrounding vasogenic edema.[radiologyassistant.nl] More than a third of them sustains seizures, with generalized seizures occurring more frequently than focal seizures. Many patients present with hemiparesis.[symptoma.com] The clinical spectrum of intracerebral hematoma, hemorrhagic infarct, non-hemorrhagic infarct, and non-lesional venous stroke in patients with cerebral sinus-venous thrombosis[ajnrdigest.org]

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    After excluding other factors, five NPSLE patients had severe infection, two patients with status epilepticus or cerebral hemorrhage, and one patient with the liver failure[archivesofrheumatology.org] All types of seizures have been reported in LC although partial and secondary general seizures are more common.[symptoma.com] She presented with new-onset generalized seizures. High-dose steroids were given for the cerebral edema.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Cerebral Angiitis

  • Subdural Hematoma

    McEvoy JPWells CE Conversion pseudodementia. J Clin Psychiatry. 1979;40447- 449 Google Scholar 79. Cicerone KD Pseudodementia after mild traumatic brain injury.[doi.org] The procedure was uneventful, however, the patient developed a postoperative large acute left temporoparietal intracerebral hematoma associated with an ipsilateral acute subdural[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Exclusion criteria History of pre‐existing seizures.[doi.org]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    The results demonstrate that hygrine and cuscohygrine are not found neither in the urine of cocaine abusers nor in cocaine seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neurological complications of cocaine abuse, such as seizures, headache, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, or subarachnoid hemorrhage, can be disastrous as a result of uncontrolled[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Unsuspected cocaine abuse is common and may provoke prolonged status epilepticus, particularly if there is a low seizure threshold.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Head Injury

    Epidural, subdural, and intracerebral hematomas were most common in juvenile, middle-aged, and elderly individuals, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute encephalopathy with biphasic seizures and late reduced diffusion (AESD) presents a distinct clinical course of biphasic seizures and impaired consciousness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Contusion or intracerebral hematoma. A contusion is a bruise to the brain itself.[m.hopkinsmedicine.org]

  • Acute Subdural Hematoma

    Clinical presentation of subacute/chronic subdural in the elderly is often vague and is one of the classic causes of a pseudodementia.[radiopaedia.org] We think that the mechanism involved in the development of a delayed intracerebral hematoma in our case was similar to the one causing delayed traumatic intracerebral hematoma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] between seizures and aSDH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    We present a patient who clearly had temporal arteritis but also developed cerebral hemorrhage, pulmonary infiltrates related to granulomatous pulmonary vasculitis, and pauci-immune[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Worsening symptoms Numbness or weakness of the face, one arm, or one leg Slurred speech, confusion, or trouble speaking or walking Severe headache Fainting spell, dizziness, or seizure[fairview.org] Central nervous system disease: seizures, cerebral vascular accidents. SSS and brain ischaemia. Intracranial vessels are involved only rarely.[patient.info]
