  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Poorly controlled chronic medical problems can result in head trauma by causing confusion or syncope and can also contribute to ongoing symptoms.[doi.org] RATIONALE: We report on a patient who showed delayed degeneration of the left fornical crus with verbal memory impairment following mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient showed mild memory impairment (especially short-term memory impairment) at 3 months after onset: Memory Assessment Scale (global memory: 95 (37%ile), short-term[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

Anorexia.[patient.info] memory Risk Factors Some people are more likely than others to develop heart failure.[medtronic.com] […] stress, weakness, lethargy Fluid retention (swelling of the legs or abdomen, weight gain), nocturia Dry cough (" heart cough "), especially at night Dizziness, palpitations, syncopes[flexikon.doccheck.com]

  • Stroke

    The largest proportions of chameleons were AMS, syncope, hypertensive emergency, systemic infection, and suspected ACS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Memory impairments are common after stroke, and the anatomical basis for impairments may be quite variable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common stroke mimics were seizures (23%), syncope (23%), and sepsis (10%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Concussion

    Deficits in working memory can impair a person's ability do everyday things, such as multitasking, Ellemberg said.[livescience.com] Some patients may experience transient loss of inability to create new memories or other brief impairment of mental functioning. Treatment is symptomatic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms usually consist of persistent recurrent headaches, dizziness, memory impairment, loss of libido, ataxia, sensitivity to light and noise, concentration and attention[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Migraine

    Abstract A 31-year-old man with migraine-induced syncope and bradycardia with subsequent pacemaker implantation died unexpectedly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (retrosplenial cortex 41 ), muscle weakness and impaired motor coordination (motor cortex 42 ), attention deficits (parietal association cortex 43 ), and visual disturbances[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thijs RD, Kruit MC, van Buchem MA, Ferrari MD, Launer LJ, van Dijk JG (2006) Syncope in migraine: the population-based CAMERA study.[doi.org]

  • Shy Drager Syndrome

    Syncope, urinary incontinence, impotence, constipation, fecal incontinence, cardiac arrythmias as well as other symptoms occur as a result of widespread pathological changes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] impairment, personality disorders, and dementia.[icd9data.com] After the patient received DL-threo-DOPS, the fall in his mean arterial blood pressure on head-up tilting was reduced and he had no syncope when standing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia with Lewy Bodies

    Other common symptoms include syncope, falls, sleep disorders, and depression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This result indicates that CA1 may be more functionally relevant than CA2 in the context of memory impairment in DLB.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Supportive clinical features include sensitivity to antipsychotic agents, postural instability and falls, syncope, autonomic dysfunction, delusions and non-visual hallucinations[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Limbic Encephalitis

    In the latest Case Record of the Massachusetts General Hospital , a 75-year-old man was seen because of memory loss and episodes of near-syncope, with word-finding difficulty[blogs.nejm.org] Subclinical seizure patterns and memory impairment persisted over one to two years after clinical seizure remission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] impairment, seizure and hyponatraemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    We report a case of a previously healthy man presenting with syncope in whom telemetry revealed sinus arrest.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Accelerated long term forgetting (ALF) is a characteristic cognitive aspect in patients affected by temporal lobe epilepsy that is probably due to an impairment of memory[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 25-year-old previously healthy man was hospitalized for syncope. While standing, he suddenly lost consciousness, followed by a generalized tonic clonic seizure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication
