867 Possible Causes for Seizure, Trismus

  • Tetanus

    The patient reported trismus and dysphagia as his main complaints.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The infant recovered, with no seizures by the 16th day from admission, and was off the ventilator by the 18th day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Furthermore, main symptoms, such as trismus, are often associated with several confounding factors: these may lead the physician to send patients towards an incorrect diagnostic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tetanus Neonatorum

    […] tetanus neonatorum is 3 to 10 days, but most newborns develop it at the end of their first week of life, when they present with irritability, feeding difficulties due to trismus[symptoma.com] […] had to be differentiated between MSUD and other metabolic disorders and neonatal infections (especially neonatal tetanus because of severe opisthotonos) and generalized seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Kekakuan dimulai pada otot-otot setempat atau trismus kemudian menjalar ke seluruh tubuh, tanpa disertai gangguan kesadaran.[kampusdokter.blogspot.com]

  • Strychnine Poisoning

    In 1933 in Leon, Nicaragua, a 22-year-old woman died after an acute convulsive illness in which she experienced trismus, opisthotonos, and hyperpyrexia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient survived despite the development of seizures, lactic acidosis, rhabdomyolysis, and pulmonary infiltrates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She then developed trismus and abdominal cramping, after which a family member said the bottle contained a compound called "slang nut."[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Status Epilepticus

    In a seizing patient, the combination of convulsions and trismus will probably make paralytics necessary for a safe intubation attempt.[first10em.com] This study provides evidence that BS is safe and associated with less breakthrough seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Due to trismus, insertion is unlikely to be successful and may result in the OPA shattering within the patient’s mouth Attach monitoring Pulse oximetry Non-invasive blood[oxfordmedicaleducation.com]

  • Kawasaki Disease

    On physical examination, the patient was pyrexic with trismus, dysphonia, uvula deviation, exudative unilateral peritonsillar swelling and unilateral cervical lymphadenopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This indicated acute encephalopathy with biphasic seizures and late reduced diffusion (AESD); severe neurological sequelae remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] or long-term seizure prone condition.[kawasakikidsfoundation.org]

  • Angioedema

    […] severe sore throat Rapid onset laryngeal voice change: hoarse, croaky, husky or no voice Systemically very unwell: pyrexia, tachycardia, tachypnoea There may be associated trismus[entsho.com] To help address this question, the Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics research network conducted a retrospective observational new-user cohort study of seizure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    We discuss the assessment and differential diagnoses of a middle-aged man who presented with trismus, double vision and behavioural problems.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Eight patients had medically intractable seizures at last follow-up and were more likely than patients with seizure remission to have generalized tonic-clonic seizures and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a patient with LGI1 encephalitis and "faciobrachial dystonic seizures-plus", which began as classic faciobrachial dystonic seizures and progressed to focal seizures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Facial Hemiatrophy

    Involuntary contractions of muscles used in chewing (hemi-masticatory spasm or trismus) may occur.[rarediseases.org] Intractable complex partial seizures developed in a 3-year-old female with normal intracranial findings on computed tomography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seizures started before the age of 20 years in three patients and were refractory simple, or complex partial seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone Secretion

    Severe neurotoxicity, consisting mainly of trismus and SIADH, was noticed after 7 days of VDS administration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After the dosage was titrated to 6 mg/d, she experienced generalized seizure attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Limbic encephalitis (LE) is a rare disorder characterized by cognitive dysfunction with memory disturbance, seizures and psychiatric symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    Ebstein's anomaly (type C of Carpentier classification) with secundum atrial septal defect, who presented to the emergency department with impaired consciousness, seizures, and trismus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this article, we present the case of a pediatric patient with neurocysticercosis who was misdiagnosed with brain abscess because of focal seizures in another hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A brain abscess that originates from an odontogenic infection, although rare, can at times be difficult to diagnose, especially in the context of pain and trismus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
