  • Damage to this lobe in the right hemisphere results in the loss of imagery, visualization of spatial relationships and neglect of left-side space and left side of the body. Even drawings may be neglected on the left side.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • […] not complete the object of the object Comprehensive analysis, known as the loss of physical sensation, which is the central back to the top of the leaflets caused by extensive damage, cortical sensory disturbances can also be expressed as a sense of neglect[healthfrom.com]
  • Neglect syndromes may occur with tumors of the nondominant parietal lobe, including lack of awareness of objects in the contralateral visual field or of movement or position of the body on the opposite side.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Also be aware that it's common for siblings to feel neglected, jealous, and angry when a child is seriously ill. Explain as much as they can understand, and enlist family members, teachers, and friends to help keep some sense of normalcy for them.[kidshealth.org]
Papilledema
  • Findings may include the following: Papilledema, which is more prevalent with pediatric brain tumors, reflects an increase in intracranial pressure (ICP) of several days or longer Diplopia may result from displacement or compression of the sixth cranial[emedicine.medscape.com]

Apraxia
  • Apraxia (from Greek praxis, an act, work, or deed[1]) is the inability to execute learned purposeful movements,[2] despite having the desire and the physical capacity to perform the movements.[slideshare.net]
  • The concept of apraxia was shaped by Hugo Liepmann about a hundred years ago. [19] [20] Apraxia is predominantly a symptom of left brain damage, but some symptoms of apraxia can also occur after right brain damage. [21] Amorphosynthesis is a loss of perception[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Apraxias are generally associated with lesions of the dominant PARIETAL LOBE and supramarginal gyrus. (From Adams et al. 20.[sentencedict.com]
  • Lesions that affect the premotor area may produce apraxia and mild rigidity but no loss of strength, whereas those that affect the motor cortex can produce contralateral weakness. Dominant hemispheric lesions may produce motor aphasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • . - Apraxia: inability to do motor tasks like dressing and brushing hair. - Left/right confusion - left side - Difficulties with calculia - left side Occipital lobe tumor symptoms - If one side is damaged, one gets a visual field cut. - If both sides[quizlet.com]

Prognosis

  • Now after having 2 surgeries and radiation therapy, they call it "conditional prognosis"...based on how the tumor responds to treatment. We're only one month past radiation so we won't even have our baseline MRI until December.[cancerforums.net]
  • Prognosis Prognosis for oligodendroglioma tumors may depend on the grading scale the tumor is in. Patients diagnosed and intervened upon earlier have a higher chance of survival.[cancerwall.com]
  • Prognosis "Prognosis" is the medical term for a prediction of life expectancy. Keep in mind that these predictions are estimates.[abta.org]
  • "In general, it's a very grim kind of prognosis," said Robert Laureno, chief of neurology at Washington Hospital Center. "It's a bad kind of tumor."[washingtonpost.com]

  • Measures such as neck compression (tourniquet) and volume loading can be helpful in preventing VAE. PEEP increases the risk of VAE.[openanesthesia.org]
  • This happens because the tumour prevents that part of the brain from working normally. In the frontal lobe – changes in personality or behaviour, uncoordinated walking or weakness on one side of the body.[express.co.uk]
  • Medical management Anticonvulsants are sometimes prescribed to prevent seizures. Steroids may be necessary to decrease the amount of swelling. Chemotherapy may be offered by your oncologist.[neurosurgery.ucla.edu]
