8 Possible Causes for Paroxysmal Activity - Sharp-Waves Occipital Bilaterally

  • Epilepsy

    Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which a person has repeated seizures over time. Seizures are episodes of uncontrolled and abnormal firing of brain cells that may cause changes in attention or behavior. Epilepsy occurs when changes in the brain cause it to be too excitable or irritable. As a result, the brain sends[…][medlineplus.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]

  • Benign Familial Infantile Epilepsy
