17 Possible Causes for Multifocal Independent Spikes, Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Central Bilaterally, Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Temporal Bilaterally

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Between these bursts are inserted periods of variable duration without obvious paroxysmal discharges but with θ–wave activity of variable amplitude involving both central[neupsykey.com] […] regions subcontinuously. 23 Bilateral jerk may be time locked with a cortical spike.[neupsykey.com]

  • Epilepsy

    Contemporary drug therapy fails to control epileptic seizures in some 30% of patients, resulting in the need to employ other measures when they appear practicable. A good deal of potentially relevant statistical detail is available regarding the outcomes of the available antiepileptic therapies, but its interpretation[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Syndrome

    Other patterns, such as multifocal independent spike discharges (MISD), are present in the remainder.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    In a clinical setting, the occurrence of periodic clusters and independent focal or multifocal accentuations of generalized spike-and-wave complexes in interictal EEG may[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[…][epilepsynw.org]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    History Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is diagnosed on the basis of clinical findings. Video-electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring of typical seizures is the criterion standard, but in the great majority of patients, a working diagnosis of probable JME is made on the basis of the clinical history, often with[…][emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Epilepsia. 2012 Dec;53(12):2079-90. doi: 10.1111/j.1528-1167.2012.03723.x. Epub 2012 Oct 25.

  • 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,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    We describe a 68-year-old woman who had typical absence seizures since 14 years of age. The absences were refractory to treatment and persisted into adulthood, with no seizure-free periods until seizure control at 59 years of age. After six years of being seizure-free, she presented with an episode[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
