  • Meningitis

    A patient with a 30-year history of RA, well controlled with methotrexate therapy, presented with new-onset seizures.[] Two hours prior to admission, he developed epileptic seizures. Brain computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed intracerebral malacic lesions.[] Case presentation A 52-year-old man presented with refractory generalized tonic-clonic seizure.[]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    edema, and lymphadenopathy (which often involves the posterior cervical chain). 2 It may also be associated with hepatomegaly and splenomegaly.[] If the patient has seizures or any seizure like activity, an EEG may help rule out other causes of encephalitis.[] Hepatitis with jaundice (more common in people older than 35) Swollen or inflamed testicles Nervous system problems (rare), such as Guillain-Barré syndrome , meningitis, seizures[]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    A 33-year-old female visited our hospital for severe, right-sided, temporal headache, chemosis, periorbital edema, and proptosis.[] Altered mental status that can range from confusion to coma Bouble vision and seizures are rare.[] Headache is the most common presentation symptom and usually precedes fevers, periorbital edema, and cranial nerve signs.[]

  • Angioedema

    Also called angioneurotic edema. See also anaphylaxis , serum sickness , urticaria.[] To help address this question, the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics research network conducted a retrospective observational new-user cohort study of seizure[] Lip and eye (periorbital) swelling are the most common. Swelling of the tongue, pharynx, and larynx is particularly problematic.[]

  • Hypophosphatasia

    Signs and symptoms consistent with anaphylaxis included difficulty breathing, choking sensation, nausea, periorbital edema, and dizziness.[] Within the first day of life, seizures (focal clonic and tonic) started. The seizures were refractory to phenobarbital and other antiepileptic drugs.[] Seizures in HPP are refractory to conventional antiepileptic drugs, but are responsive to pyridoxine.[]

  • Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndrome

    The main clinical manifestations are myalgia, migratory erythematous rash, periorbital edema, and abdominal pain.[] Onset, severity and complications (mainly retardation, seizures, destructive arthropathy and amyloidosis) depend on the specific mutation.[] With regards to the latter, headaches, vomiting and seizures as well as papilledema are most commonly registered.[]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    […] pain, edema, and erythema associated with fever.[] The results demonstrate that hygrine and cuscohygrine are not found neither in the urine of cocaine abusers nor in cocaine seizures.[] Unsuspected cocaine abuse is common and may provoke prolonged status epilepticus, particularly if there is a low seizure threshold.[]

  • Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    She had mild pretibial and periorbital edema, with oliguria (450 mL/day).[] The second patient developed cerebral TMA (seizures, vision loss, and nystagmus) 6 days after initial presentation and remained unresponsive to PE/PI.[] After 24 months, she was relapse-free and seizure-free, with a normal neurological examination.[]

  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

    Findings include the following: Puffy face and periorbital edema typical of hypothyroid facies Cold, dry skin, which may be rough and scaly - Skin may appear yellow but does[] Myxedema Severe untreated hypothyroidism leads to myxedema, a condition characterized by the following: Heart failure Seizures Loss of consciousness Death.[] Examination findings may include the following: Puffy face and periorbital edema typical of hypothyroid facies Cold, dry skin, which may be rough and scaly Peripheral edema[]

  • Necrobiotic Xanthogranuloma

    Clinically, the patient presented with dry eyes and substantial periorbital edema with multiple yellow indurated plaques.[] This 52-year-old man, in whom NXG with all its cutaneous manifestations had been diagnosed, presented with three episodes of generalized tonic-clonic seizures.[] Periorbital edema and plaques improved during a 6-month regimen of acitretin but returned to baseline just months after discontinuation.
