138 Possible Causes for Tonic Posturing

  • Vasovagal Syncope

    Abstract In this work, a graphical method to study cardiovascular coupling, called delta space plot analysis (DSPA), was introduced. The graphical representation is susceptible to be parameterized in shape and orientation. The usefulness of this technique was studied on cardiovascular data from patients with[…][]

  • Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 3

    BACKGROUND: Ocularly, Batten disease is characterized by a rapid deterioration of vision, progressing to blindness within a few years. Onset typically occurs at between 5 and 10 years of age. The fundus shows a bull's eye maculopathy, diffuse pigmentary degeneration, arteriolar attenuation and optic atrophy, and an[…][]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Findings in children seen between 1955 and 1965 during the year of onset of typical absence seizures (90 patients) or rolandic epilepsy (79 patients) were analyzed by actuarial methods. One hundred and eighteen patients were followed for more than 15 years. Rolandic epilepsy is a true benign epilepsy ending with[…][]

  • Versive Seizure

  • Infantile Hemiplegia

    posturing of the limbs.[] METHODS: The patients with SEIBD both had hemiplegia, due to gross contralateral hemispheric lesions, and suffered from tonic postural seizures, frequently provoked by sudden[] RESULTS: Firstly, video-polygraphic recordings of startle-evoked seizures, triggered by unexpected auditory stimuli, showed tonic asymmetrical postures with ictal EEG characterized[]

  • Benign Familial Neonatal Epilepsy

    Seizures were brief and the phenotype was of a mixed seizure type, starting with tonic posture, ocular symptoms, apnea, and other autonomic features.[] Seizures were focal, alternating between hemispheres, and characterized by asymmetric tonic posturing associated with apnea and desaturation, followed by unilateral or bilateral[] Seizures generally consist of brief episodes of tonic posturing and other movements, apnea, eye deviations, and blood pressure fluctuations.[]

  • Sandifer Syndrome

    Intermittent stiff tonic postures and episodic crying and discomfort may suggest seizures, although evidence to support this possibility is lacking.[] posturing.[] During wakefulness and associated with feeding, there were about 20 attacks of spastic torsional dystonia/opisthotonia and tonic body posturing for half a minute without clear[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Nocturnal Frontal Lobe Epilepsy

    Sudden, hyperkinetic movements and dystonic posturing or tonic stiffening of the limbs and the body occur, often with superimposed clonic components.[] posturing »Gestural automatisms »Adaptability 9. »Broca Loss of an area of brain - loss of function of that area ( Neurologic deficit) »Jackson Loss of an area of brain -[] The tonic posturing in this area is unilateral or asymmetric between the left and right hemispheres.[]
