221 Possible Causes for Seizures, Possibly Refractory Seizures

Did you mean: Seizures, Possibly, Refractory Seizures

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    The deficit can worsen following surgery to relieve refractory seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] secondary generalized seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors present the case of a 51-year-old woman with a 4-year history of medication-refractory seizures, which were localized on electroencephalography to the right temporal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    CASE PRESENT: We presented a case with refractory myoclonic seizures, and progressive neurological deterioration, diagnosed as PME and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] manifested by focal seizures.[doi.org] seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Status Epilepticus

    BACKGROUND: Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a common cause of viral encephalitis that can lead to refractory seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , withdrawal seizure, intra-hospital complications, functional outcome at 3 months, and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE REPORT: A 17-year-old girl presented as acute psychosis, refractory seizures, hyperkinesia, autonomic instability, and soon progressed to a dissociative state of coma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alpers Syndrome

    seizures, neurodegeneration, and liver disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein we present a case of a 17-year-old male with a progressive 8-month course of severe headaches, multiple stroke-like episodes with visual deficits, and seizures that[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Children present with seizures in half of the cases. Seizures may be focal, generalized or myoclonic.[symptoma.com]

  • West Syndrome

    seizures and severe developmental delays.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On the tenth day of treatment, he developed frequent partial seizures, characterized by being motionless during the seizure with eye deviation to the right.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Deep tendon reflexes were absent, and at 5 months of age, she developed West syndrome followed by refractory seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Patients with treatment-refractory seizures seem to present a broader impairment related to both cognitive deficits and impulsive traits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Response to valproate therapy of rotatory seizures was good.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sixty-eight patients were seizure free in the last 12 months of their follow-up and 48 patients had at least one seizure of any type.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    CASE STUDY: A 9-year-old girl was referred to our department for refractory seizures and behavioral disturbances. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was normal.[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] Type-A gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABAa) receptor antibodies have been recently identified in encephalitis with refractory seizures, whereas the roles of antibodies to the glycine[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Motor Seizure

    -It is imperative that refractory epilepsy be diagnosed and addressed as soon as possible.[epilepsynyc.com] If the whole brain is involved, the electrical disturbance is called a generalized seizure. This type of seizure used to be called a grand mal seizure.[health.harvard.edu] Focal seizures without dyscognitive features Focal seizures with dyscognitive features Primary generalized seizures Classic tonic‑clonic seizur es (see grand mal seizure[amboss.com]

  • Hyperventilation

    Abstract Topiramate is a recently released antiepileptic agent used in the treatment of patients with refractory seizure disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is well known that hyperventilation induces absence seizures, and it has been reported that hyperventilation can induce complex partial seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE SUMMARY: A 52-year-old woman with refractory seizure disorder was admitted to the burn care unit with burns over 10% of her body.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    Seizure control - were considered if patients were seizure free for at least 1 year while on AED; medically refractory seizures - those with seizure occurring with frequency[annalsofian.org] PURPOSE: Unilateral seizures, or hemiconvulsive attacks, are motor seizures with tonic and/or clonic phenomena that involve only one side of the body.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PGTC seizures in IGE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
