17 Possible Causes for Multifocal Epileptiform Spikes, Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Frontal Right, Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Parietal Left

  • Epilepsy

    Abstract Many episodic phenomena involving motor, sensory, autonomic, and behavioral functions may imitate epilepsy. The aim of this article is to focus on the various manifestations and the diagnostic and therapeutic challenges of the most common of these disorders, as well as their relationship to emotional[…][]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    ‘Contrary to popular folk belief, nothing should be placed in the mouth during the seizure. Severe injury could occur.’ Generalized tonic clonic seizures (grand mal seizures) are the most common and best known type of generalized seizure. They begin with stiffening of the limbs (the tonic phase), followed by jerking[…][]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Neurogenetics. 2008 May;9(2):139-42. doi: 10.1007/s10048-008-0118-4. Epub 2008 Jan 30. Abstract Benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME or FAME) is an autosomal dominant condition, characterized by shivering-like tremors of cortical origin, myoclonus, and epilepsy. Linkage to chromosomes 2p11.1-q12.2 and[…][]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Fifteen cases of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) were identified from one hundred and eighty consecutive patients referred to a new epilepsy clinic at St Thomas' Hospital between April 1989 and December 1990, a prevalence of 8.3%. Of these, only one was referred with a putative diagnosis of JME. Diagnosis of the[…][]

  • West Syndrome

    […] by Michael Wong, MD, PhD Dr. Wong is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine and an epileptologist in the Pediatric Epilepsy Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Introduction In 1841, West originally reported infantile spasms as an unusual and severe form of convulsions[…][]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Neurol Sci. 2016 Jul;37(7):1071-7. doi: 10.1007/s10072-016-2538-5. Epub 2016 Mar 8.

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    Abstract The EEG of 38 patients suffering from primary generalized myoclonic astatic epilepsy since early childhood is studied in late stages of the disease. Spectral analysis shows that parietal 4-7 cps rhythms (theta rhythms) which are typical of the EEG in the early stages of the disorder can still exist in the[…][]

  • Organic Brain Syndrome

    Abstract This study addresses the prevalence of organic brain syndrome (OBS) among long-term toluene-exposed rotagravure workers who are still working. The prevalence of OBS in 22 workers exposed to toluene for a minimum of 12 years and 19 unexposed control subjects, matched for age and employment status,[…][]

  • Encephalopathy

    Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome is an encephalopathy that can be clinically characterized by headache, altered mental status and/or seizures. Neuroimaging demonstrates usually reversible bilateral subcortical vasogenic occipital-parietal edema. Exact pathophysiology remains unclear but is commonly[…][]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    The characterization of a seizure as generalized or focal onset depends on a basic knowledge of the underlying pathophysiology. Recently, an uncommon phenomenon in generalized epilepsy-evolution of seizures from generalized to focal followed by secondary generalization-was reported for the first time. We describe[…][]
