17 Possible Causes for Multifocal Pattern with Spikes and Sharp-Waves , Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Parietal Left

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    The classic interictal EEG finding is the hypsarrhythmia pattern, which consists of a highvoltage, disorganized background with multifocal spike and sharp waves.[euroformhealthcare.biz] This pattern may first occur during non-rapid eye movement sleep and may disappear during rapid eye movement (active sleep) sleep or the waking state.[euroformhealthcare.biz]

  • Epilepsy

    PURPOSE: Exogenous estrogens might lead to seizure worsening in women with epilepsy (WWE) by lowering the seizure threshold and inducing glucuronidation in women taking lamotrigine. Assisted reproduction techniques are increasingly used and often require estrogenic and estrogen raising hormone therapy. We aimed at[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Onset usually occurs in the second decade. Generalised tonic clonic seizures (GTCS) can occur at any time with majority in the early morning often precipitated by sleep deprivation and other external factors. The EEG shows generalised spike and wave discharges of 3 to 4 Hz and some with photic sensitivity. This is[…][pennsw.com.au]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is a condition characterized by recurrent seizures (epilepsy). This condition begins in childhood or adolescence, usually between ages 12 and 18, and lasts into adulthood. The most common type of seizure in people with this condition is myoclonic seizures, which cause rapid, uncontrolled muscle[…][ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Syndrome

    West Syndrome is a severe epileptic encephalopathy characterized by epileptic spasms, hypsarrhythmia, and regression of psychomotor acquisitions beginning in the first year of life. ARX and CDKL5 genes were identified as linked to the most frequent genetic causes of West Syndrome. The present study reports the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is a group of epileptic disorders that are believed to have a strong underlying genetic basis. Patients with an IGE subtype are typically otherwise normal and have no structural brain abnormalities. People also often have a family history of epilepsy and seem to have a genetically[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    Myoclonic epilepsy in infancy (MEI) is a primary generalized epilepsy. According to the literature, the outcome of MEI is usually benign. Here we report a patient who developed myoclonic astatic epilepsy at age four, having been seizure free without antiepileptic drug treatment for 2 years after his recovery from MEI.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Organic Brain Syndrome

    An organic brain syndrome ( OBS ), also known as an organic brain disease/disorder ( OBD ), an organic mental syndrome ( OMS ), or an organic mental disorder ( OMD ), is a syndrome or disorder of mental function whose cause is alleged to be known as organic ( physiologic ) rather than purely of the mind. These[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Encephalopathy

    Encephalopathy is a condition that affects the functioning of the brain. Such a condition can result from either direct injury to the brain or due to certain other disease conditions. Altered mental state is the major symptom of encephalopathy. In addition, affected individuals will also experience confusion,[…][symptoma.com]

  • 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]
