687 Possible Causes for Stroke-Like Episodes

  • Rasmussen Syndrome

    Abstract Rasmussen syndrome is an intractable epilepsy with a putative causal relation with cellular and humoral autoimmunity. Almost half of the patients have some preceding causative factors, with infections found in 38.2%, vaccinations in 5.9% and head trauma in 8.9% of Japanese patients. In a patient with seizure[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • MELAS Syndrome

    The episodic nature of stroke-like episodes is unexplained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report imaging findings during, between, and after 2 stroke-like episodes in a 45-year-old woman with mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the name implies, stroke-like episodes are the defining feature of the MELAS syndrome, often occurring before the age of 15 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • MERRF Syndrome

    Clinically, symptoms such as myoclonus epilepsy, neural deafness and ataxia were variably associated with stroke-like episodes and/or migrainous attacks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The relationship between MERRF and mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) encephalopathies is reappraised by extension of this hypothesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We investigated whether this small mtDNA deletion is co-transmitted with human diseases such as mitochondrial encephalomyopathy with lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitochondrial Myopathy

    Patients acquire disability through stroke-like episodes and have an increased mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most commonly patients have myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] episodes (MELAS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lactic Acidosis

    IMPORTANCE: Stroke-like episodes signal progression and significant disability in the mitochondrial encephalomyopathy lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] several molecular genetic analyses, an uncommon mitochondrial mutation was confirmed, unequivocally consistent with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Epileptic seizures in patients with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) are heterogeneous with no pathognomonic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Maternally-Inherited Diabetes and Deafness

    episodes (MELAS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Various symptoms and markers of MIDD, including seizures, migraines, short stature, mental retardation, and stroke-like episodes, were reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The same mutation has also been linked to the syndrome of mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Depression

    Mitochondrial encephalomyopathy with lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS) is a specific subtype of mitochondrial cytopathy that is commonly associated with mood[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Hashimoto's encephalopathy is a neuropsychiatric disease with symptoms of cognitive impairment, stroke-like episodes, seizures, and psychotic or affective symptoms[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mitochondrial Disease

    Patients with the m.3243A G mutation remain at high risk of developing stroke-like episodes (1.16% per year).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] syndrome (mitochondrial encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We describe a patient in whom abdominal pain and vomiting were the presenting symptoms of Mitochondrial Myopathy Encephalopathy, Lactic Acidosis with Stroke-like[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lethal Infantile Mitochondrial Myopathy

    Common central nervous system findings are fluctuating encephalopathy, seizures, dementia, migraine, stroke-like episodes, ataxia, and spasticity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] episodes (MELAS), myoclonic epilepsy with ragged-red fibers (MERRF), neurogenic weakness with ataxia and retinitis pigmentosa (NARP), or Leigh syndrome (LS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It has a wide range of clinical presentations, from lethal infantile mitochondrial disease to isolated myopathy. 1– 3 Mitochondrial encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like[jmg.bmj.com]

  • CADASIL Syndrome

    In addition, we identified the novel p.C201R (c.T601C) mutation in exon 4 of the Notch3 gene in a proband of the third family with two consecutive stroke-like episodes and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Autosomal dominant syndrome with stroke-like episodes and leukoencephalopathy.[doi.org] Presentation There are no generally accepted diagnostic criteria but features that may suggest the disease include: [ 5 ] Stroke-like episodes before age 60 years Cognitive[patient.info]
