52 Possible Causes for Light-induced Abnormality

  • Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To study seizure control and rates of foetal malformation in pregnancies of women with epilepsy treated with antiepileptic drug polytherapy. METHODS: The use of conventional statistical methods to analyse the Australian Pregnancy Register records of 1810 pregnancies in women with epilepsy, 508 treated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sunburn

    Polymorphic light eruption: Recurrent abnormal reaction to UVR. It can present in various ways including pink-to-red bumps, blisters, plaques and urticaria.[en.wikipedia.org] Solar urticaria: UVR-induced wheals that occurs within minutes of exposure and fades within hours.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Stroke

    If an EEG does not produce any abnormalities, stimuli such as strobe lights, or rapid breathing may be added to help induce any abnormalities.[healthline.com] Some EEGs do not include lights or other stimuli.[healthline.com] When someone has epilepsy or another seizure disorder, the stimuli presented during the test (such as a flashing light) may cause a seizure.[healthline.com]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Other less common symptoms include weakness, light-headedness, palpitations, and abnormalities in heart rate or blood pressure.[en.wikipedia.org] These symptoms are likely induced by a massive surge of catecholamines from the sympathetic nervous system, which occurs in response to pain and, where present, low blood[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Migraine

    Unlike forms of photophobia defined as abnormal light sensitivity 11, or ocular discomfort induced by light (also termed photo-oculodynia) 15, we postulated that exacerbation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Milium

    Stroking may induce purpura in the lesions of colloid millium. Usually there is no associated systemic abnormality [ 10 ].[escholarship.org] By light microscopy, colloid milium is found in the middle and upper dermis and is characterized by accumulation of a homogeneous, amorphous, faintly eosinophilic material[escholarship.org]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

  • Uncinate Seizure

    […] by a flickering light Physiologic epilepsy - biologic or electrobiologic seizures based on physiologic and not on organic or structural abnormalities of the brain Post-traumatic[webmanmed.com] […] epilepsy – symptomatic epilepsy Partial epilepsy – focal epilepsy Petit Mal epilepsy – absence epilepsy Photic, photogenic epilepsy – reflex epilepsy in which seizures are induced[webmanmed.com]

  • Migraine with or without Aura

    Unlike forms of photophobia defined as abnormal light sensitivity 11, or ocular discomfort induced by light (also termed photo-oculodynia) 15, we postulated that exacerbation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Photosensitive Epilepsy

    See Hamandi (doi:10.1093/awx049) for a scientific commentary on this article.Photosensitivity is a condition in which lights induce epileptiform activities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] EEG usually shows generalized spike wave discharges that are seen primarily during the events of self-induced seizures and may also be seen during photic (light) stimulation[epilepsy.com] […] adults to have an abnormal response to light stimulation, and the first light-induced seizure almost always occurs before age 20" The article follows with this statistic:[developer.mozilla.org]
