10 Possible Causes for Paroxysmal Activity - Sharp-Waves Occipital

  • Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To study seizure control and rates of foetal malformation in pregnancies of women with epilepsy treated with antiepileptic drug polytherapy. METHODS: The use of conventional statistical methods to analyse the Australian Pregnancy Register records of 1810 pregnancies in women with epilepsy, 508 treated[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vascular Dementia

    Vascular dementia (VaD) is a general term describing problems with reasoning, planning, judgment, memory, and other thought processes caused by brain damage from impaired blood flow to the brain. Cognitive rehabilitation and physical therapy are the mainstays of dementia treatment, although often ineffective[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain. Severity is variable. Symptoms may include headache, fever, confusion, a stiff neck, and vomiting. Complications may include seizures, hallucinations, trouble speaking, memory problems, and problems with hearing.Causes of encephalitis include viruses such as herpes simplex virus[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Benign Rolandic epilepsy or benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BCECTS) is the most common epilepsy syndrome in childhood. Most children will outgrow the syndrome (it starts around the age of 3–13 with a peak around 8–9 years and stops around age 14–18), hence the label benign. The seizures,[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Prion diseases are unique transmissible neurodegenerative diseases that have diverse phenotypes and can be familial, sporadic, or acquired by infection. Recent findings indicate that the PrP genotype and the PrP(Sc) type have a major influence on the disease phenotype in both sporadic and familial human prion[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Periventricular Leukomalacia

    2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 779.7 Periventricular leukomalacia 2015 Billable Thru Sept 30/2015 Non-Billable On/After Oct 1/2015 ICD-9-CM 779.7 is a billable medical code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim, however, 779.7 should only be used for claims with a date of service on or before[…][icd9data.com]

  • Fragile X Syndrome

    Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited form of cognitive deficiency in humans and perhaps the best-understood single cause of autism. A trinucleotide repeat expansion, inactivating the X-linked FMR1 gene, leads to the absence of the fragile X mental retardation protein. FMRP is a selective RNA-binding[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lafora Disease

    The first EEG record, carried out the day after admission, showed slightly slow background activity with bursts of slow waves and paroxysms of spikes and waves.[jnnp.bmj.com] Intermittent photic stimulation induced generalised discharges of slow and sharp waves with bursts of spike and polyspike wave complexes in occipital regions.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy

    […] diffuse theta activity and sporadic isolated bilateral sharp waves over the occipital regions (Fig. 4a).[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] The EEG examination showed diffuse abnormal background activity, with sporadic isolated bilateral sharp waves over the occipital regions (a).[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] In this patient, IPS induced moderate‐voltage irregular spike‐and‐slow wave complexes and paroxysmal bursts of high‐voltage polyspikes more evident over the occipital region[onlinelibrary.wiley.com]

  • Angelman Syndrome

    The third pattern, 3–6 Hz activity punctuated by spikes and sharp waves in occipital leads, is associated with eye closure.[en.wikipedia.org] Paroxysms of laughter have no relation to the EEG, ruling out this feature as a gelastic phenomenon. [10] EEG anomalies may be used as a quantitative biomarkers to "chart[en.wikipedia.org]
