548 Possible Causes for Occipital Encephalocele, Seizure

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    A 19-year-old female was referred with seizures and the Dandy-Walker syndrome. We continued the medical workup and also treated the patient with psychotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is rare for Dandy-Walker syndrome to occur together with occipital encephalocele.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A young boy presented with mental retardation and seizures with extensive hairy naevi.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalocele

    In Case 2, with a large encephalocele and a 5-year history of refractory seizures, surgical disconnection of the temporal pole successfully abolished seizures without any[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is the first case report of the association of an occipital encephalocele with a rare vascular tumor, i.e. papillary intralymphatic angioendothelioma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors report a clinical case of an 80-year-old woman with primary occipital encephalocele on the right side and that was affected by trauma and presented liquor fistula[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Craniosynostosis-Dandy-Walker Malformation-Hydrocephalus Syndrome

    Butterfly frick appearance on face unclassified epileptic seizure a second seizure before the person has fully regained consciousness from the preceding seizure[quizlet.com] There was history of excision of occipital encephalocele and insertion of a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt at birth.[indianpediatrics.net] KNOBLOCH SYNDROME 1; KNO1 Is also known as kno, retinal detachment and occipital encephalocele;knobloch-layer syndrome; retinal detachment-occipital encephalocele syndrome[mendelian.co]

  • Meningioma

    These types of posterior fossa meningiomas can cause headaches, seizures, and difficulty walking.[mountsinai.org] We present a case of an adult woman with CSF rhinorrhea following resection of an occipital meningioma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Few studies focus on seizure outcomes after resections of meningiomas.[epilepsy.com]

  • Subependymal Giant Cell Astrocytoma

    Tumors are also removed in cases where a patient is suffering from a high seizure burden.[en.wikipedia.org] encephalocele ), or a failure of some nerve cells ( neurons ) to migrate to their proper location in the brain during development.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov] encephalocele (7%) [3] Microcephaly Dermoid cysts Malformation of the cerebellar folia (25%) Malformation of the inferior olivary nucleus Hamartoma of the tuber cinereum[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    The aim of our study was to evaluate the incidence of seizure in CMD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Occipital encephalocele can also occur.[rarediseases.org] Occipital encephalocele and Dandy Walker cyst may be present. The eye anomalies involve both anterior and posterior chambers with retinal detachment and blindness.[doi.org]

  • Hypothalamic Hamartoma

    seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] encephalocele 0002085 Postaxial hand polydactyly Extra little finger Extra pinkie finger Extra pinky finger [ more ] 0001162 Pulmonary hypoplasia Small lung Underdeveloped[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Six patients (67%) were seizure-free after surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lissencephaly

    It is to consider lissencephaly in the diagnosis of developmental delay with seizure disorder as many patients may be diagnosed as cerebral palsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (a) Axial US image of the cranium in an 18-week fetus shows an encephalocele (arrow) that protrudes through an occipital bone defect.[doi.org] Seizures may be particularly problematic but anticonvulsant medications can help.[ninds.nih.gov]

  • Occipital Encephalocele

    This patient presented later in life with complaints of headache and seizure.[jclpca.org] Two children with giant occipital encephaloceles with herniation of significant brain parenchyma into the encephalocele sac were managed with expansile cranioplasty and reconstruction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Occipital encephaloceles are the most frequent type in North America and Western Europe, where about 85% of encephaloceles take this form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis

    Seizure severity did not vary by sex or genotype. Seizures showed mild worsening with increasing age.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] encephalocele Occipital horn syndrome Occipital malformations of cortical development Occipital MCD Occipital pachygyria and polymicrogyria Occlusive infantile arteriopathy[csbg.cnb.csic.es] The symptoms appeared in two young adult siblings, and included progressive retinopathy, recurrent generalized seizures, moderate ataxia, and subtle cognitive dysfunction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
