226 Possible Causes for Multifocal Slowing

  • Epilepsy

    Electroencephalogram is consistently abnormal, showing findings such as background slowing, multifocal and generalized epileptiform discharges and polyspikes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] background, multifocal discharges hypsarrhythmia high voltage bilateral slow spike-wave discharges modified hypsarrhythmia hypsarrhythmia Course of EEG slow background, slow[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] spike waves and runs of fast spikes not specified generalized (poly)spike waves, slow spike waves, multifocal discharges, generalized paroxysmal fast activity, diffuse slowing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

  • Encephalopathy

    Repeat EEG showed multifocal sharp waves and a slow background for age. Zonisamide was started, which improved his sleep cycle.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Good control of glucose and blood pressure in patients with diabetes may improve or at least slow the progress of neuropathy.[patient.info] Chronic inflammatory demyelinative polyneuropathy is treatable with corticosteroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, plasma exchange and some immunosuppressant drugs.

  • Multifocal Atrial Tachycardia

    Multifocal atrial rhythm (at slow rate) persisted in one patient. Two patients with falling serum potassium levels required potassium supplements.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thus, verapamil is safe and effective therapy for multifocal atrial tachycardia, consistently slowing the heart rate and often restoring sinus rhythm.[doi.org] Multifocal atrial tachycardia was successfully converted to sinus rhythm or sinus tachycardia in seven patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

  • Stroke

    Some possibilities include degenerative processes, encephalitis, extensive multifocal vascular diseases and toxic-metabolic encephalothies 11,13,30.[scielo.br] Assessing generalized asynchronous slow activity requires analyzing frequency, amplitude, distribution, persistence and reactivity, searching an associated finding that may[scielo.br]
