54 Possible Causes for Occipital Slowing, Progressive Memory Impairment

  • Brain Concussion

    CTE is marked by "memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression, and, eventually, progressive dementia," according to Boston[rt.com] The symptoms of CTE may include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression, anxiety, suicidality, parkinsonism (movement symptoms[alz.org] […] similar to Parkinson's disease), and, eventually, progressive dementia.[alz.org]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    The symptoms of CTE may include memory loss, confusion, impaired judgment, impulse control problems, aggression, depression, anxiety, suicidality, parkinsonism (movement symptoms[alz.org] […] similar to Parkinson's disease), and, eventually, progressive dementia.[alz.org]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    After admission, the confusion progressed and the patient experienced memory impairment and motor agitation.[n.neurology.org]

  • CNS Metastasis

    Although radiation therapy may lead to longer survival, the side effects of radiation, such as impaired thinking and memory, limit its practical use in people with these tumors[aans.org] In addition, the inability to then use radiation treatments if or when the tumor progresses has led many doctors to defer radiation treatments in patients who are not having[aans.org]

  • Encephalitis

    Severe cases can cause permanent impairment including fatigue, irritability, impaired concentration, seizures, hearing loss, memory loss, and blindness.[cedars-sinai.org] Unfortunately, severe cases can cause permanent impairment including fatigue, irritability, impaired concentration, seizures, hearing loss, memory loss, and blindness.[hopkinsmedicine.org] In some severe cases, the disease progresses rapidly causing death. Can encephalitis be prevented?[cedars-sinai.org]

  • Glioma

    Although radiation therapy may lead to longer survival, the side effects of radiation, such as impaired thinking and memory, limit its practical use in people with these tumors[aans.org] In addition, the inability to then use radiation treatments if or when the tumor progresses has led many doctors to defer radiation treatments in patients who are not having[aans.org]

  • Dementia

    As dementia progresses, memory loss and cognitive impairment broaden in scope until the individual can no longer remember basic social and survival skills or function independently[britannica.com] […] activity, abnormal (low uptake) [123I]meta‐iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) myocardial scintigraphy and prominent slow wave activity on electroencephalography (EEG) with temporal[doi.org] It may progress to severe memory loss, confusion, hallucinations, delusions, tremors, impaired speech, motor dysfunction and difficulty in eating.[symptoma.com]

  • Vascular Dementia

    The key to diagnosis is a good history of progressive impairment of memory and other cognitive functioning (usually requiring the help of a spouse, relative or friend).[patient.info] Prominent posterior slow-wave activity on EEG with periodic fluctuations in the pre-alpha/ theta range.[indianjpsychiatry.org] Eventually, due to memory loss and impaired problem solving, a person may simply “forget” how to walk.[livestrong.com]

  • X-linked Parkinsonism-Spasticity Syndrome

    As the disease advances problems with language (impaired naming, progress to fluent aphasia, and mutism), calculations, topographical memory and visuospatial functions (difficulty[neuroweb.us] […] activity  Abnormal (low uptake) MIBG myocardial scintigraphy  Prominent slow wave activity on EEG with temporal lobe transient sharp waves 72.[slideshare.net] Early signs are deficits in attention, concentration, orientation, abstract reasoning, progressive amnesia (often periodic loss of recent memory e.g. delayed verbal recall[neuroweb.us]

  • Pallidopyramidal Syndrome

    Peripheral axonal neuropathy Olivopontocerebellar atrophy Spastic paraparesis Delusions Dysphonia Pain Rapidly progressive Alzheimer disease Myopathy Memory impairment Central[mendelian.co] […] activity  Abnormal (low uptake) MIBG myocardial scintigraphy  Prominent slow wave activity on EEG with temporal lobe transient sharp waves 72.[slideshare.net] She did not have any memory impairment. She was born of a non-consanguineous marriage and had 3 brothers. None of her family members suffered from a similar illness.[neurologyindia.com]
