17 Possible Causes for Paroxysmal Activity - Spikes Temporal Bilaterally, Type 3 EEG Response Parietooccipital Spikes Followed by Biphasic Slow-Waves Spreading to the Frontal Region

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    Onset usually occurs in the second decade. Generalised tonic clonic seizures (GTCS) can occur at any time with majority in the early morning often precipitated by sleep deprivation and other external factors. The EEG shows generalised spike and wave discharges of 3 to 4 Hz and some with photic sensitivity. This is[…][pennsw.com.au]

  • 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]

  • West Syndrome

    […] by Michael Wong, MD, PhD Dr. Wong is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine and an epileptologist in the Pediatric Epilepsy Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Introduction In 1841, West originally reported infantile spasms as an unusual and severe form of convulsions[…][web.archive.org]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGEs) constitute one third of all epilepsies. They are genetically determined and affect otherwise normal people of both sexes and all races. IGEs manifest with typical absences, myoclonic jerks, and generalized tonic-clonic seizures, alone or in varying combinations and severity.[…][epilepsy.com]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    Myoclonic epilepsy in infancy (MEI) is a primary generalized epilepsy. According to the literature, the outcome of MEI is usually benign. Here we report a patient who developed myoclonic astatic epilepsy at age four, having been seizure free without antiepileptic drug treatment for 2 years after his recovery from MEI.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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

    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]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    We describe a 68-year-old woman who had typical absence seizures since 14 years of age. The absences were refractory to treatment and persisted into adulthood, with no seizure-free periods until seizure control at 59 years of age. After six years of being seizure-free, she presented with an episode[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
