141 Possible Causes for Malaise, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis, Seizure

  • Brain Abscess

    We report the case of a 43-year-old man who first presented with a seizure and an altered level of consciousness 5 months after halo-vest placement for an odontoid fracture[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical features: The earliest stage where the brain tissue is invaded (stage of encephalitis) is marked by the presence of headache, fever, malaise and vomiting.[sites.google.com] The patient was a 60-year-old man admitted for a seizure and administered an anticonvulsant, after which he began stuttering.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Seizures, focal or generalized, may be the earliest expression of a brain tumor.[emedicine.medscape.com] When should LP be performed after febrile seizure? What enzyme is deficient in Tay-Sachs? How do you distinguish from Nieman Pick?[brainscape.com] Common symptoms include: headaches (often worse in the morning and when coughing or straining) fits (seizures) regularly feeling sick or vomiting memory problems or changes[nhs.uk]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

    A14-year-old boy presented with epileptic seizures and thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus and frontal hemorrhagic venous infarction after ingestion of 50 mg of dimenhydrinate[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subsequent computed tomography and magnetic resonance venography confirmed a superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case also extends the clinical spectrum of cerebral sinus thrombosis to include recurrent transient ischemic attacks alternating with seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dehydration

    There is any other change in the person's alertness (for example, confusion or seizures). The person has a fever over 102 F (38.8 C).[nlm.nih.gov] Complications may include irreversible shock, sagittal or other venous sinus thrombosis, intractable seizures, and renal failure. Bettari L, Fiuzat M, Shaw LK, et al.[emedicine.medscape.com] The common symptoms of all patients were vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and malaise, although fever was seen mostly in the patients of rotavirus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Three normotensive patients presented with seizures and CT showed an intracerebral hematoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The presenting symptoms include headache, seizures and focal neurological deficit, which are due to a parasitic granulomatous space-occupying lesion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    Altered mental status that can range from confusion to coma Bouble vision and seizures are rare.[webmd.com] The list of complications provided in an article by Mueller regarding internal jugular vein thrombosis included pulmonary embolism, subclavian vein and superior sagittal sinus[ijcasereportsandimages.com] Other signs/symptoms include evidence of intracranial hypertension (vomiting, papilledema, visual disturbances), neurologic deficits, seizures, and coma.[shmabstracts.com]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    Age, seizures and shock signs were independently associated with mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early complications of bacterial meningitis include seizures, raised intracranial pressure (seen in the image below), cerebral venous thrombosis, sagittal sinus thrombosis[emedicine.medscape.com] Meningococcal meningitis typically starts like the flu, with the sudden onset of an intense headache, fever, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, and malaise.[medicinenet.com]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

    Presentation Headaches There may be localised swelling Fever Nuchal rigidity Altered mental state (from subtle changes, confusion or complete coma) Focal neurological signs, eg seizures[patient.info] Male patient admitted to the hospital by fever, headache, malaise and diplopia. Physical examination shows left eye proptosis, oedema and ecchymosis.[rubbuy781.blogspot.com] Anticonvulsants should be given in patients who have had a seizure and should be maintained for 12 – 18 months to avoid further seizures.[bioline.org.br]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    We found that APS was strongly associated with neurological manifestations and in particular with cerebrovascular diseases and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sinus thrombosis 1 Brainstem infarct 1 Associations 2 0 (0) 0 (0) 0 (0) 0 (0) 0 (0) 2 (100) 0 (0) 0 (0) Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura 1 Steroid‐induced psychosis 1[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, individuals also experience fever, fatigue, malaise, sensitivity to light and development of butterfly shaped rashes.[symptoma.com]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    Mortality and residual disability are relevant in patients presenting with intracranial hemorrhage or with epileptic seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebral vein thrombosis, also called superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, is a well recognized clinical and radiologic entity associated with a variety of medical disorders[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 40-year-old man developed general malaise, dizziness and progressive headache 1 week after acute haemorrhagic conjunctivitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
