  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
    Lateral Q Wave

    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a genetic disorder characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy without an identifiable cause. Most patients have little or no disability and a normal life expectancy. Higher rates of morbidity or mortality are linked to the complications of the disorder, sudden cardiac death,…[1]

    Lateral Q Wave
  • Coronary Arteriosclerosis
    Lateral Q Wave

    Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as ischemic heart disease (IHD), is a group of diseases that includes: stable angina, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac death. It is within the group of cardiovascular diseases of which it is the most common type. A common symptom is chest pain or…[2]

  • Herpes Simplex Encephalitis
    Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges

    Herpes simplex encephalitis constitutes an uncommon infectious disease, leading to inflammation of the brain parenchyma, as a result of a herpes simplex virus type I (HSV-I) infection. Rarely, in neonates, the encephalitis is caused by herpes simplex virus type II (HSV-II). Herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) is an…[3]

  • Powassan Encephalitis
    Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges

    Powassan encephalitis is a rare infection caused by Powassan virus in specific regions of North America, Canada, and Russia. The virus is transmitted by a tick bite, and constitutional symptoms followed by a range of neurological deficits, including altered consciousness, are typical features. The diagnosis rests on…[4]

  • Japanese Encephalitis
    Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges

    Japanese encephalitis is a serious infection caused by the mosquito-borne Japanese encephalitis virus from the family Flaviviridae. It occurs mainly in rural parts of Asia. The disease presents in 3 stages, first is the acute stage (1-2 weeks), second subacute stage (more than 2 weeks) and the third stage lasting…[5]

  • California Encephalitis
    Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges

    California encephalitis is an arbovirus-induced, arthropod-borne encephalitis. California encephalitis virus belongs to the Bunyaviridae family of viruses and was first discovered and isolated from mosquitoes collected in California in 1943. Only 26% of the arbovirus infections have been found to be symptomatic.…[6]

  • Eastern Equine Encephalitis
    Periodic Lateralized Epileptiform Discharges

    Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is a mosquito-borne viral disease. It is associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. Important points to consider in patient history are outdoor exposures, recent travels, social history, insect bite history, work/home in high-risk areas, exposure to areas with high…[7]
