  • Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

    Our patients with either Wernicke's encephalopathy or additional Korsakoff's psychosis do not differ from controls in the distribution and number of these cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The pattern of both anterograde and retrograde memory impairment and frontal pathology is shown to be comparable with that observed in patients with Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] impairment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis

    Psychiatric manifestations include anxiety, mania, social withdrawal, and psychosis (i.e., delusions, hallucinations, disorganized behavior).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient exhibited a severe short-term episodic memory impairment and psychiatric symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our findings suggest that anti-NMDAR lead to reduced NMDAR function in vivo which could contribute to the memory impairment found in patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Psychosis None of the studies reported the absolute incidence of psychosis.[dx.doi.org] Additionally, there is also evidence that CBD may reduce the negative psychotropic effects, memory impairment, and appetite stimulation, anxiety and psychotic-like states[dx.doi.org] […] or ataxia, memory impairment, and somnolence.[doi.org]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    This case presents a patient with thiamine deficiency after gastric bypass, although unusual in itself, further complicating the case was the initial diagnosis of acute psychosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cognitive assessment revealed severe impairment of memory, attention, and logical and executive abilities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Korsakoff psychosis consists of mental confusion, dysphonia, and confabulation with impaired memory of recent events.[merckmanuals.com]
