43 Possible Causes for Spike-and-Slow-Wave or Polyspike-and-Slow-Wave Discharges

  • Epilepsy

    ) discharges or generalized spike wave and polyspike wave activity.[brain.oxfordjournals.org] 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] After infancy, the EEG background was normal (5), showed diffuse slowing (10) or focal slowing that was bilateral fronto-temporal (2) and left temporal (1).[brain.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Tonic-Clonic Seizure

    During a police chase on foot, a previously well police officer was hit mistakenly by a taser shot meant for the suspect. The taser gun had been fired once, sending 2 barbed darts into his upper back and occiput. Within seconds, the officer collapsed and experienced a generalized tonic-clonic seizure with loss of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myoclonic-Astatic Epilepsy

    Myoclonic-atonic seizures with falls are the defining symptoms. • EEG shows frequent generalized discharges of spike/polyspike-slow wave at varying frequencies of 2.5 to 3[medlink.com] Myoclonic-atonic seizures manifest with discharges of irregular spike-wave or polyspike-wave complexes at a frequency of 2.5 to 3 Hz, or faster.[medlink.com] Caution: Focal slowing consistently over 1 area is not seen consider structural brain abnormality. Interictal. Generalized spike-and-wave and polyspike-and-wave occur.[medlink.com]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 17

    ) discharges or generalized spike wave and polyspike wave activity.[dx.doi.org] EEG recordings showed a variety of changes: generalized spike wave and polyspike wave activity, focal discharges, focal or diffuse slowing or were normal.[dx.doi.org] After infancy, the EEG background was normal (5), showed diffuse slowing (10) or focal slowing that was bilateral fronto-temporal (2) and left temporal (1).[dx.doi.org]

  • Absence Seizure

    To evaluate the role of ethosuximide, sodium valproate and lamotrigine in children and adolescents with typical absence seizures (AS). A systematic review of randomized controlled trials that included children or adolescents with typical absence seizures who received treatment with ethosuximide, sodium valproate or[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Clonic or Tonic-Clonic Seizures

    ‘Contrary to popular folk belief, nothing should be placed in the mouth during the seizure. Severe injury could occur.’ Generalized tonic clonic seizures (grand mal seizures) are the most common and best known type of generalized seizure. They begin with stiffening of the limbs (the tonic phase), followed by jerking[…][epilepsynw.org]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Abstract Benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME) has been mapped to chromosome 8q23.3-q24.1, 2p11.1-q12.1, 5p15.31-p15.1, and 3q26.32-3q28, in Japanese, Italian, Thai, and French pedigrees, respectively. Recently, we investigated a Chinese BAFME family. Clinical and electrophysiological studies revealed that nine[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a type of epilepsy that starts in in childhood or the teen years. People who have it wake up from sleep with quick, jerking movements of their arms and legs. These are called myoclonic jerks. Even if you don’t have epilepsy, you’ve probably had these jerks that jolt you awake,[…][webmd.com]

  • Early Infantile Epileptic Encephalopathy Type 6

    Four children had generalized spike and slow wave or polyspike and slow wave.[neurology.org] EEGs were initially normal in 3 children, but by 2 years of age, all had developed multifocal discharges and diffuse background slowing.[neurology.org]

  • West Syndrome

    2015 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 345.6 Infantile spasms There are 2 ICD-9-CM codes below 345.6 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim. Clinical Information A rare autosomal recessive inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the pla2g6 gene. It is[…][icd9data.com]
