15 Possible Causes for Poorly Responsive Seizures

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    If Carbamazepine is not effective, poorly tolerated or contraindicated, any other anti-epileptic drug for focal epilepsy (or drug combination) may be employed for seizure[doctorstrizhak.com] […] at the time of seizure events.[dx.doi.org] Treatment of Autosomal Dominant Focal Epilepsy Syndromes Most of familial focal epilepsies demonstrate a very good response to Carbamazepine.[doctorstrizhak.com]

  • Epilepsy

    The seizures are poorly controlled if at all by traditional antiepileptic drugs.[doi.org] The diagnosis is based on the clinical and electroencephalogram response to pyridoxine, which is usually rapid ( Gupta 2001 ).[doi.org]

  • Status Epilepticus

    It is a broad-spectrum AED that can be used effectively in virtually all types of seizure, and safely in patients whose seizure type is poorly characterised. 25 The mean efficacy[hkmj.org] […] of VPA has been reported to be 70% to 76% in more than 800 patients with SE. 23 25 The response rate was better in children than in adults and did not differ between the[hkmj.org]

  • Focal Motor Seizure

    AIM: Signs indicating the end of a focal seizure with loss of awareness and/or responsiveness but without progression to focal or generalized motor symptoms are poorly defined[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Not recognizing the transition from ictal to postictal behaviour can affect seizure reporting accuracy by family members and may lead to delayed or a lack of examination during[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy 25

    Definition A disease characterized by seizures appearing in the first days of life, subclinical epileptic status, and recognizable EEG patterns with bilateral, multifocal status epilepticus. Patients have profound or severe delayed development with lack of speech, and most patients do not acquire the ability to sit.[…][uniprot.org]

  • New-Onset Refractory Status Epilepticus

    It is a broad-spectrum AED that can be used effectively in virtually all types of seizure, and safely in patients whose seizure type is poorly characterised. 25 The mean efficacy[hkmj.org] […] of VPA has been reported to be 70% to 76% in more than 800 patients with SE. 23 25 The response rate was better in children than in adults and did not differ between the[hkmj.org]

  • NADH Cytochrome B5 Reductase Deficiency

    […] are poorly responsive to treatment; Seizure severity and frequency tend to improve with age MOLECULAR BASIS: Caused by mutation in the solute carrier family 13 (sodium-dependent[findzebra.com] Abnormal involuntary movements; Multifocal discharges seen on EEG MISCELLANEOUS: Two families reported (last curated August 2014); Onset in the first hours or days of life; Seizures[findzebra.com]

  • Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia

    Patients with nonketotic hyperglycinemia generally have intractable seizures that are poorly responsive to anticonvulsant medication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ring Chromosome 20 Syndrome

    These syndromes are often ongoing and poorly responsive to anti-seizure medications.[en.wikipedia.org] Recurrent seizures are the most recognizable feature of this syndrome and are most often the first sign of this syndrome.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Immunosuppressive Therapy

    Here, we report a case of a patient with recurrent seizures, poorly responsive to conventional treatment, associated with anti-GAD antibodies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient was experiencing near daily seizures at the time of presentation and had marked improvement while receiving immunosuppressive therapy and therapeutic plasma exchange[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
