Example text

This EEG can simulate “posterior slow waves of youth,” which is a physiologic finding. However, persistent lateralization raises a concern of abnormality in the right posterior quadrant. 22 Normal and Benign Variants 1 FIGURE 115. Asymmetric Alpha Rhythm. (same EEG recording as in Fig. 1-14) EEG shows a train of spikes in the right parietal region (open arrow) as well as theta and polymorphic delta slowing in the right occipital region. Persistent lateralization of theta and delta slowing is a red flag for posterior slow wave of youth and should raise the concern of focal abnormality in that area.

This EEG was performed as a routine postoperative follow-up. The “H-response” is a prominent photic driving response at flash rates beyond 20 Hz. The sensitivity of the H-response varied from 25% to 100%, and the specificity from 80% to 91%. Although the relatively high sensitivities and specificities of the H-response in distinguishing migraine patients from controls and tension headache patients, the American Academy of Neurology concluded that the H-response was not more effective than history and examination in diagnosing headaches.

Posterior slow-wave transients associated with eye movements is an EEG pattern consisting of a monophasic or biphasic slow transient with a duration of 200–400 msec and a voltage of up to 200 μV in the occipital regions (*). The latency of 100–500 msec is noted after the eyeblinks or eye movements. The initial component of the transient is surface positive.
