196 Possible Causes for Multifocal Discharges

  • Neonatal Seizures

    More multifocal epileptiform discharges in EEG, more abnormal neuroimaging findings, and higher incidence of future developmental delay were noted in the group with later[] […] dischages in neonatal period and hypsarhythmia or focal-unilateral spike discharges in infancy.[] […] approximately half of the cases were febrile convulsion, benign infantile convulsion or breath-holding spell. 6) EEG features of cerebral malformation were asymmetrical or multifocal[]

  • Panayiotopoulos Syndrome

    In PS, reportedly, dipoles of multifocal epileptic discharges are usually located in the occipital and Rolandic areas.[] Multifocal epileptiform discharges on EEG were identified in 84% of the patients. Two or more antiepileptic drugs were required in only 13% of the patients.[] multifocal spikes.[]

  • Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome

    Electroencephalography showed diffuse slowing or multifocal discharges. Neuroimaging demonstrated normal findings in 10 children.[]

  • Carotid Stenosis

    One patient with a multifocal ischemic stroke died few days after admission. Discussion The prevalence of ischemic stroke subtype in this study is 46%.[] Most of the patients were discharged home after 2 days, patients with low Glasgow coma score and those who did the CT scan with a delay stay longer than usual.[]

  • Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy Type 8

    […] fast spikes, polyspikes and polyspike‐and‐wave discharges Slow background activity, spike‐ and polyspike‐and‐wave discharges and multifocal spikes activated by non‐REM sleep[] Slow background activity mixed with low‐voltage fast activity, along with diffuse, irregular, spike‐ and polyspike‐and‐wave discharges Slow background activity and multifocal[] […] spike and polyspike‐and‐wave discharges.[]

  • Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    The patient was discharged on medical management with a grave prognosis.[] This is explained by the fact that there are multiple ectopic foci that discharge impulses which lead to atrial activation.[] Multifocal atrial tachycardia Multifocal atrial tachycardia (MAT, chaotic atrial tachycardia) is an irregularly irregular rhythm caused by the random discharge of multiple[]

  • Familial Infantile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Neuro imaging is normal and the EEG usually shows generalized interictal discharges, although focal and multifocal discharges may also be seen.[] .  EEG shows multifocal discharges, typically rhythmic theta activity, that progressively expand to adjacent cortical areas  Ictal and interictal EEGs become indistinguishable[] […] and/or generalized interictal discharges.[]

  • Vitiligo

    […] wave discharges.[] Hypsarrhythmia is a characteristic interictal pattern of chaotic, high to extremely high-voltage polymorphic delta and theta rhythms with superimposed multifocal spikes and[]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Of these nine, seven had multifocal discharges corresponding with contralateral jerky movement and photosensitivity (photoparoxysmal response, photomyoclonic response).[] .  EEG shows multifocal discharges, typically rhythmic theta activity, that progressively expand to adjacent cortical areas  Ictal and interictal EEGs become indistinguishable[] Cortical myoclonus is more commonly encountered in a multifocal form, presenting with multifocal spike discharges.[]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    […] atrial tachycardia (MAT) Discharge from multiple ectopic foci in the atrium Associated with pulmonary disorders (e.g., COPD exacerbation, pulmonary embolism), cardiac conditions[] […] atrium Very abrupt onset Regular rhythm Rate: 150–250 P wave: morphology varies depending on the site of the ectopic focus Occurs before the QRS complex Narrow QRS complex Multifocal[]
