116 Possible Causes for Occipital Focal Spikes

  • Epilepsy

    Rask and Fernando Torres, Clinical Manifestations in Children with Occipital Spike‐Wave Paroxysms, Epilepsia, 33, 4, (667-674), (2005). R. J.[doi.org] Erdly, Long-term EEG-video-audio monitoring: computer detection of focal EEG seizure patterns, Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology, 82, 1, (1), (1992).[doi.org]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Benign Rolandic epilepsy benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes benign focal epilepsy of childhood: Epilepsy characterized by partial (focal) seizures, often[childneurologyfoundation.org] Abnormal electrical activity is recorded in the back of the brain on EEG (occipital lobes), without brain anatomic abnormalities to explain the events.[childneurologyfoundation.org]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    The EEG signature of IGE is bisynchronous, symmetric, and generalized spike-wave complex; although focal, irregular, and so called "fragments" of discharges are not uncommon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other characteristic EEG features include polyspikes, polyspike-wave discharges, occipital intermittent rhythmic delta activity, and photoparoxysmal response.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is characterized by seizures, severe cognitive abnormalities, and behavior impairments. These features could evolve over time and get worse, especially when the encephalopathy is pharmacoresistant. Thus, genetic studies should provide a better understanding of infantile epilepsy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Syndrome

    2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 345.6 Infantile spasms There are 2 ICD-9-CM codes below 345.6 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim. Clinical Information A rare autosomal recessive inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the pla2g6 gene. It is[…][icd9data.com]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    Photic stimulation is a recognized cortical precipitant of GSW ( Niedermeyer, 1996 ) and focal occipital spike and slow wave ( Ricci and Vigevano, 1993 ).[academic.oup.com] Previous clinical and EEG studies show a relationship between generalized and focal spike–wave discharges in some situations.[academic.oup.com] Furthermore, the electrographic findings in both syndromes include GSW or occipital spikes. This overlap may be due to shared genetic determinants.[academic.oup.com]

  • 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 (; from Ancient Greek: ἐνκέφαλος "brain" πάθος "suffering") means any disorder or disease of the brain, especially chronic degenerative conditions. In modern usage, encephalopathy does not refer to a single disease, but rather to a syndrome of overall brain dysfunction; this syndrome can have[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Uremic Encephalopathy

    Uremic Encephalopathy (UE) is a neurological complication associated with acute or chronic renal failure. Imaging findings of UE may present involvement of the basal ganglia, cortical or subcortical regions, and white matter. We report a rare case of UE caused by neurogenic bladder with isolated brainstem involvement[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
