314 Possible Causes for Obstructive Hydrocephalus, Stupor

  • Subdural Hematoma

    […] grade 0: asymptomatic grade 1: alert, oriented, mild symptoms (e.g. headache) grade 2: drowsy or disoriented, variable neurological deficits (e.g. hemiparesis) grade 3: stupor[] KEYWORDS: Cerebral ventriculomegaly; Congenital hydrocephalus; Intracranial hypertension; Newborn; Obstructive hydrocephalus; Subdural hematoma; Ventricular atrium diverticulum[] hydrocephalus.[]

  • Ventricular Hemorrhage

    The third patient with a left thalamic and basal ganglia hemorrhage, who was initially awake and then lapsed into stupor days later, underwent surgery, but did not recover[] METHODS: Patients with intracerebral hemorrhage, severe IVH, and obstructive hydrocephalus with the need for external ventricular drainage were treated with IVF through external[] Infants with severe intraventricular hemorrhage might develop metabolic or respiratory acidosis, apnea, hypotonia and stupor. The newborn might go into a coma.[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Symptoms, as a result of a mass effect from the tumour or due to obstructive hydrocephalus, include morning headaches, nausea, vomiting, diplopia (a manifestation of sixth[] On the left is an image of a calcified mass in the suprasellar region, causing obstructive hydrocephalus.[] Another method that may be used to control obstruction of the brain fluid pathways is called an Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy.[]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    Alterations in consciousness may follow several hours later, which include impaired judgement and memory, confusion, somnolence and stupor.[] A review of the literature yielded 15 additional case reports describing reversible obstructive hydrocephalus related to hypertensive encephalopathy.[] 1 Up to 16% of patients with hypertensive crisis have hypertensive encephalopathy, which is characterized by severe hypertension, confusion, visual complaints, headache, stupor[]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    […] swallowing or vision, loss of balance or coordination, difficulty understanding, speaking , reading, or writing, and a change in level of consciousness or alertness, marked by stupor[] Patients with an intraventricular haematoma with no evidence of obstructive hydrocephalus were also excluded from the study.[] Symptoms can include: Abnormal sense of taste Change in alertness (level of consciousness) Apathetic, withdrawn Sleepy, lethargic, stuporous Unconscious, comatose Difficulty[]

  • Medulloblastoma

    The patient was in a stuporous mental state. A reoperation was performed, and the mass was totally removed.[] Medulloblastoma is a malignant embryonal tumor that arises in the cerebellum and invades the fourth ventricle, often resulting in obstructive hydrocephalus.[] Medulloblastoma occurs in the 4th ventricle and usually presents with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure (headaches, nausea, vomiting) and signs of obstructive hydrocephalus[]

  • Meningeal Tuberculosis

    Seizures, focal neurological deficits, stupor and coma may be seen in late stages.[] However, surgery is required for patients with obstructive hydrocephalus and those in poor grades.[] Stage III This final stage is marked by an advanced state of coma or stupor, seizures, dense neurological deficits, posturing as well as abnormal movements.[]

  • Lead Encephalopathy

    […] exudate. 3 Lead acts as a cellular toxin by inhibiting mitochondrial respiration. 4 Clinically, patients present with headache, vomiting, ataxia, convulsions, paralysis, stupor[] We review a case of lead poisoning in a 9-month-old child who presented clinically and radiographically with a posterior fossa mass effect and obstructive hydrocephalus.[] […] neuropsychiatric amnesia: short term memory poor concentration ataxia dysarthria sensory loss and paraesthesia in the extremities fatigue, sleep problems headaches depression stupor[]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    […] summarized as follows: intensive and progressive cephalea, the main symptom; seizures (39.3%); paresis (37.2%); papilledema (28.3%); altered mental state (22%), aphasia (19.1%), stupor[] […] leading to a cyclical cascade of edema and further cerebral venous obstruction.[] The brain is under increased venous pressure, and tissue perfusion is at increased risk compared with other situations with obstructive hydrocephalus.[]

  • Brain Stem Hemorrhage

    hydrocephalus and can be discovered after the patient is found unresponsive.[] "Endoscopic management of hypertensive intraventricular haemorrhage with obstructive hydrocephalus". BMC Neurol. 7 : 1. doi : 10.1186/1471-2377-7-1. PMC 1780056.[] […] only presenting symptom of left hemi-body paresthesia Background: Brainstem hemorrhages, especially at the level of the Superior Colliculi is rare in itself but can lead to obstructive[]
