2,333 Possible Causes for Memory Impairment, Progressive Disease

  • Alzheimer Disease

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Semantic memory measures may be useful in tracking and predicting progression of Alzheimer disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The MCI patients showed impairment of everyday memory tasks requiring delayed recall.[dx.doi.org] Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease. This means that gradually, over time, more parts of the brain are damaged.[alzheimers.org.uk]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    The current gold standard for measuring clinical disease progression in PSP is the PSP Rating Scale score.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report the case of a 75-year-old ex-professional boxer who developed diplopia and eye movement abnormalities in his 60's followed by memory impairment, low mood and recurrent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] impairment, personality disorders, and dementia.[icd9data.com]

  • Frontotemporal Dementia

    This is a progressive disease that slowly worsens over time.[med.unc.edu] The second patient presented with progressive memory impairment and marked personality changes after a transient ischaemic attack.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] FTD is a progressive disease striking a younger population with symptoms typically occurring between the ages of 50 to early 60's.[ctftdfoundation.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    The disease course of progressive MS is characterised by the build-up of neurologic disability (the loss of some bodily or mental functions) with or without relapses.[msif.org] Additionally, there is also evidence that CBD may reduce the negative psychotropic effects, memory impairment, and appetite stimulation, anxiety and psychotic-like states[frontiersin.org] […] or ataxia, memory impairment, and somnolence.[doi.org]

  • Vascular Dementia

    Definition Vascular dementia is a chronic progressive disease of the brain bringing about cognitive impairment.[bestpractice.bmj.com] impairment and other deficits to meet operationalized criteria for dementia, and (3) the use of limited test batteries whose psychometric properties are incompletely understood[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recent memory impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mild Cognitive Impairment

    The present case shows a slowly progressive disease with caudate atrophy and characteristic brain calcifications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The case of Ms E, a 60-year-old woman with mild memory impairment and white matter lesions on magnetic resonance imaging, provides an opportunity to consider the questions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The Cox proportional hazards model was used to analyze hazard ratios (HRs) of PA and MTA for disease progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    The diagnosis of Vitamin B12 deficiency is challenging in resource limited-settings due to limited access to diagnostic tools and unfamiliarity with the disease, owing to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These results suggest that memory retention impairment formed during vitamin B 12 deficiency is partially attributable to oxidative stress. Copyright 2016 The Authors.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Overview B12 deficiency may cause an extraordinary variety of progressive neurologic syndromes.[medlink.com]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a rapidly progressive disease causing damage to the brain.[web.archive.org] A week later, she was hospitalized due to memory impairment; repeated MRI and total body computed tomography scan showed no significant findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Here, we report the first case of V180I rare mutation in a Brazilian woman whose clinical condition started with memory impairment for recent events and insomnia with 2 months[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    The symptoms and progression of the disease depend on the type of dementia a person has.[healthline.com] The mechanisms underlying age-associated memory impairment are, however, not understood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We aimed to identify predictors of misclassification by 3 brief cognitive assessments; the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), Memory Impairment Screen (MIS) and animal[cp.neurology.org]

  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies

    Unfortunately, LBD is a progressive disease (usually over years), although the rate of progression varies.[medicinenet.com] This result indicates that CA1 may be more functionally relevant than CA2 in the context of memory impairment in DLB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On neuropsychological tests, sub-cortical frontal syndrome is frequent, visual memory impairment, visuospatial impairment and visuo-constructive difficulties are also characteristics[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
