16 Possible Causes for Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Temporal Bilaterally, Series of Focal Spikes

  • Epilepsy

    Abstract Objectives The standardized mortality ratio for suicide in people with epilepsy is reported as 5.1 [95% confidence interval (CI): 3.9–6.6], but this is only partially explained by the high rates of psychiatric comorbidity. This issue was revived when, in 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an[…][oadoi.org]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Abstract Clinical course and long-term seizure prognosis were studied in 155 patients with complex-partial seizures during a follow-up of 10.1 /- 1 (SD) years. In 79% of the patients generalized tonic-clonic seizures were recorded, mostly within the first 3 years of epilepsy but occurring as late as 20 years after[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: The pathogenesis of benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME) remains unknown, although cerebellar pathologic changes and brain hyperexcitability have been reported. We used resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine the functional connectivity between the cerebellum and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is a condition characterized by recurrent seizures (epilepsy). This condition begins in childhood or adolescence, usually between ages 12 and 18, and lasts into adulthood. The most common type of seizure in people with this condition is myoclonic seizures, which cause rapid, uncontrolled muscle[…][ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Idiopathic photosensitive occipital lobe epilepsy (IPOE) is a syndrome that should be suspected in patients with seizures with occipital semiology, photosensitivity, and normal MRI. It should be distinguished from occipital epilepsy of unknown aetiology (cryptogenic) given the differences in management. We reviewed[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalopathy

    Eclampsia, an obstetric emergency frequently seen in pregnant or puerperal women, is a risk factor for posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). Most cases of eclampsia occur postpartum. We report a woman with PRES associated with eclampsia 10 weeks post-delivery, the latest onset ever reported. A[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Uremic Encephalopathy

    Uremic encephalopathy is a complication of renal failure leading to cerebral dysfunction. It is characterized by nausea, vomiting, lethargy and disorientation in the initial stages progressing to delirium, seizures and later coma, if untreated. Diagnosis is based on clinical signs, cognitive tests, renal function tests,[…][symptoma.com]
