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.[] The MCI patients showed impairment of everyday memory tasks requiring delayed recall.[] Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease. This means that gradually, over time, more parts of the brain are damaged.[]

  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

    The current gold standard for measuring clinical disease progression in PSP is the PSP Rating Scale score.[] 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[] impairment, personality disorders, and dementia.[]

  • Frontotemporal Dementia

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

  • 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.[] Additionally, there is also evidence that CBD may reduce the negative psychotropic effects, memory impairment, and appetite stimulation, anxiety and psychotic-like states[] […] or ataxia, memory impairment, and somnolence.[]

  • Vascular Dementia

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

  • Mild Cognitive Impairment

    The present case shows a slowly progressive disease with caudate atrophy and characteristic brain calcifications.[] 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[] The Cox proportional hazards model was used to analyze hazard ratios (HRs) of PA and MTA for disease progression.[]

  • 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[] These results suggest that memory retention impairment formed during vitamin B 12 deficiency is partially attributable to oxidative stress. Copyright 2016 The Authors.[] Overview B12 deficiency may cause an extraordinary variety of progressive neurologic syndromes.[]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a rapidly progressive disease causing damage to the brain.[] A week later, she was hospitalized due to memory impairment; repeated MRI and total body computed tomography scan showed no significant findings.[] 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[]

  • Dementia

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

  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies

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