Occipital seizures and subcortical T2 hypointensity in the setting of hyperglycemia.

Occipital lobe seizures are a recognized manifestation of diabetic nonketotic hyperglycemia, though not as common as focal motor seizures. Occipital l...

Occipital lobe seizures and subcortical T2 and T2* hypointensity associated with nonketotic hyperglycemia: a case report.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia often causes seizures. Recently, seizures associated with nonketotic hyperglycemia have been found to be associated with subcortical T2 hypointensity on magnetic resonance imaging, especially in the occipital lobes. However,

Occipital seizures and persistent homonymous hemianopia with T2 hypointensity on MRI in nonketotic hyperglycemia.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia (NKH) is known to cause focal motor or secondarily generalized seizures. Occipital seizures in NKH are seldom reported, especially with visual hallucinations and persistent homonymous hemianopia (HH) with characteristic radio

Effects of Age, Gender and Hemispheric Location on T2 Hypointensity in the Pulvinar at 3T.
Pulvinar signal intensity decrease on T2-weighted images has been reported in some neurological abnormalities. We aimed to define the normal T2 signal hypointensity pattern present in the pulvinar to avoid erroneous radiological interpretation. One h

Decreased subcortical cholinergic arousal in focal seizures.
Impaired consciousness in temporal lobe seizures has a major negative impact on quality of life. The prevailing view holds that this disorder impairs consciousness by seizure spread to the bilateral temporal lobes. We propose instead that seizures in

Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related epileptic seizures.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related seizures (NKH) are rare. We report a case of NKH-related seizures in a patient following a traumatic brain injury.

Seizures in setting of dementia.
Dementia, especially Alzheimer's disease, is an important cause of seizures and epilepsy midst the elderly. With the increasing life span, the incidence of dementia and epilepsy is expected to increase exponentially. Care of patients with advanced de

Novel finding of optic nerve central T2 hypointensity utilizing 3 Tesla MR imaging.
We sought to report a central T2 hypointensity within the optic nerve on 3 T MRI studies obtained as part of the NASA Flight Medicine Visual Impairment Intracranial Pressure Protocol that had not been described previously. Twenty-one astronauts, who

Benign occipital lobe seizures: Natural progression and atypical evolution.
Benign occipital seizure syndromes are benign childhood epilepsy syndromes and are mainly of two types, Panayiotopoulos syndrome, an autonomic epilepsy and idiopathic childhood occipital epilepsy of Gastaut (ICOE-G) including the idiopathic photosens

Are seizures in the setting of sleep deprivation provoked?
It is generally accepted that sleep deprivation contributes to seizures. However, it is unclear whether a seizure occurring in the setting of sleep deprivation should be considered as provoked or not and whether this is influenced by seizure type and
