135 Possible Causes for Temporal Focal Spikes

  • Epilepsy

    In infancy, the EEG background was normal (1), showed diffuse (3) or focal slowing that was temporal (1) and in the left hemisphere (1), and showed focal (central, temporal[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] 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]

  • Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

    spikes immediately preceding bisynchronous discharges, and subsequently to temporal intermittent rhythmic delta activity and temporal lobe-onset seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this rare case of coexistent primary generalised epilepsy and focal epilepsy, the epileptic networks of the two forms of epilepsy appear to overlap.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] was an electrographic evolution from the typical generalised epileptiform patterns, characteristic of juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, to the novel appearance of interictal temporal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Syndrome

    Brain MRI revealed no abnormal findings although interictal EEG demonstrated left centro-parieto-temporal localized spike foci.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The focal ES of one lower limb, following treatment of ES in these two infants with WS, suggests the origin of the ES in the first case to be a neocortical focus involving[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benign Adult Familial Myoclonic Epilepsy

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate electroencephalographic (EEG) features of benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME). METHODS: We reviewed interictal EEG features in patients with BAFME treated between April 2005 and November 2012 at a tertiary referral center. The diagnostic criteria for BAFME were the presence[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy

    The term idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) is used to designate a group of epileptic conditions with a genetic etiology. Patients with IGE have otherwise normal development, don't present with any structural brain damage and usually have a family history of epilepsy. Clinical manifestations of IGE depend on its[…][symptoma.com]

  • Ganglioglioma

    Ganglioglioma is a rare, slow-growing primary central nervous system (CNS) tumor which most frequently occurs in the temporal lobes of children and young adults. Gangliogliomas are generally benign WHO grade I tumors; the presence of anaplastic changes in the glial component is considered to represent WHO grade III[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Organic Brain Syndrome

    An organic brain syndrome ( OBS ), also known as an organic brain disease/disorder ( OBD ), an organic mental syndrome ( OMS ), or an organic mental disorder ( OMD ), is a syndrome or disorder of mental function whose cause is alleged to be known as organic ( physiologic ) rather than purely of the mind. These[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Encephalopathy

    Encephalopathy (; from Ancient Greek: ἐνκέφαλος "brain" πάθος "suffering") means any disorder or disease of the brain, especially chronic degenerative conditions. In modern usage, encephalopathy does not refer to a single disease, but rather to a syndrome of overall brain dysfunction; this syndrome can have[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Juvenile Absence Epilepsy

    Valproic acid is commonly and effectively used in the treatment of idiopathic generalized epilepsies, including juvenile absence epilepsy. Although several adverse effects are associated with this drug, it has only rarely been known to exacerbate seizures. Similar to antiarrhythmic drugs aggravating particular[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
