94 Possible Causes for Slowing with Polyspike-and-Slow-Waves

  • Hypoglycemia

    Intern Med. 2016;55(8):949-53. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.55.5737. Epub 2016 Apr 15. Author information 1 Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Dokkyo Medical University, Japan. Abstract We encountered a 62-year-old woman who experienced frequent episodes of hypoglycemia. She was diagnosed with postprandial[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hyponatremia

    OBJECTIVES: To assess symptoms and characteristics of hyponatremia, the most common electrolyte disturbance in hospitalized individuals and a condition that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. DESIGN: Prospective observational multicenter study. SETTING: Two Swiss academic centers. PARTICIPANTS:[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Although the neuropathologic changes and diagnostic criteria for the neurodegenerative disorder Alzheimer's disease (AD) are well-established, the clinical symptoms vary largely. Symptomatically, frontal variant of AD (fv-AD) presents very similarly to behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), which creates[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Pediatric head injuries are common and may present with varying degrees of altered mental status in children. The approach to evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of further injury is important in achieving good health outcomes after a head injury. In this article, we review the pathophysiology,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsy

    EEG recordings showed a variety of changes: generalized spike wave and polyspike wave activity, focal discharges, focal or diffuse slowing or were normal.[brain.oxfordjournals.org] ) discharges or generalized spike wave and polyspike wave activity.[brain.oxfordjournals.org] MRI-normal C-VI-7 16 yrs 9 mths 10 yrs GTCS, abs, MJ, FS 9 mths Mild – 6 yrs: generalized slowing 15 yrs: generalized polyspike wave MRI-normal C-VI-8 12 yrs 6 mths 2.5 yrs[brain.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    […] or polyspike and slow-wave complexes.  Variable course and outcome.  One half experience encephalopathic effects and suffer from persistent GTCS, myoclonic-atonic status[slideshare.net] […] down in second and third year and comes to standstill  Ataxia-59%  EEG-generalised discharges of fast spike- wave or polyspike wave in burst or isolation  Photic stimulation[slideshare.net] […] muscle tone, often causing a fall and referred to as a drop attack  Most patients experience heterogeneous seizure presentations  Interictal EEG with 4–7 Hz spike and slow-wave[slideshare.net]

  • Cushing Syndrome

    Cushing syndrome is characterized by truncal obesity, growth deceleration, skin changes, muscle weakness, and hypertension. Cushing syndrome in childhood usually results from the exogenous administration of glucocorticoids. This article presents the causes and discusses the treatment of endogenous Cushing[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    […] and waves with frontocentral predominance Interictal EEG : 4–6 Hz bilateral polyspike and slow wave Responds well to antiseizure drug therapy; seizures become less frequent[amboss.com] Generalized spike-and-wave or polyspike-and-wave is seen in the interictal EEG. Half of the patients have these abnormalities only in sleep. Caution.[medlink.com] Bursts of 2–5 Hz spikes and waves or polyspikes; slow waves synchronous to atonic phase Background slowing with theta rhythm 70% remission with normal development and cognition[amboss.com]
