220 Possible Causes for Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Organic Brain Syndrome

  • Alzheimer Disease

    The hippocampus is reduced by an average of 5 percent in normal pressure hydrocephalus- a brain disorder in which excess brain fluid leads to thinking and reasoning problems[immersive.healthcentral.com] ("organic brain syndrome" or "organic brain disease").mp.[doi.org] pressure hydrocephalus ) Stroke Thyroid disease Vitamin deficiency CT or MRI of the brain may be done to look for other causes of dementia, such as a brain tumor or stroke[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    Normal pressure hydrocephalus may occur due to secondary causes or may be idiopathic.[symptoma.com] brain syndrome Question 2 What changes on imaging studies (computerized tomography [CT], magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) are the most characteristic of normal-pressure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] low pressure hydrocephalus HYDROCEPHALUS, NORMAL-PRESSURE Chronic adult hydrocephalus NPH symptomatic hydrocephalus[wikidata.org]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Mondini dysplasia is rare, but has an important association with recurrent bacterial meningitis. We herein describe the case of a 3-year-old girl with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss who presented with three independent episodes of bacterial meningitis within 8 months. Temporal bone computed tomography indicated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    A 61-year-old Japanese woman presented with a headache and appetite loss lasting for nine days and was admitted to our hospital, where she was diagnosed with pneumococcal meningitis associated with acute sphenoid sinusitis. While the administration of meropenem and dexamethasone ameliorated the meningitis, right[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    A patient with fatal recurrent meningococcal meningitis is described. Detailed complement and immunological investigation revealed a combined deficiency of C8 and anti-meningococcal antibody. An inability to make anti-meningococcal antibody in C8 deficient patients has not been previously reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Listerial Meningitis

    Listeria monocytogenes is an important cause of life-threatening bacteremia and meningoencephalitis in neonates, pregnant women, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals. However, it is an uncommon cause of illness in immunocompetent children beyond the neonatal period. Ampicillin with or without an aminoglycoside[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hemophilus Meningitis

    Abstract Eleven cases of Hemophilus meningitis seen in the last year are reported. Three were H. parainfluenzae and eight were H. influenzae. The number of patients is small but probably indicates that there is little difference in the clinical or laboratory data in meningitis caused by these two organisms. The[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leptospiral Meningitis

    Leptospirosis is a widespread zoonotic disease characterised by headache and fever. These symptoms are often suggestive of meningitis, but only a proportion of patients have leptospiral meningitis. We report episodes of leptospiral meningitis in patients admitted to a tertiary referral centre in the Netherlands, in[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    Pressure Hydrocephalus Vascular Dementia There are other conditions that can cause dementia or dementia-like symptoms including reactions to medications, metabolic problems[hopkinsmedicine.org] Forty‐two institutionalized patients with a diagnosis of chronic organic brain syndrome (the article does not specify any procedure or criterion for this diagnosis) were randomly[doi.org] These may include viral infections such as HIV, Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, chronic heavy alcohol intake, Huntington's disease, progressive supranuclear palsy and normal pressure[news-medical.net]

  • Tularemia Meningitis

    Tularemia meningitis occurred in a previously healthy 64-year-old man from Northern Sweden. The patient was immunocompetent and recovered without sequelae. The bacterial isolate conformed by most criteria with the Euro-Asian biovar Francisella tularensis var. palaearctica. Tularemia meningitis may mimic meningitis[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
