Symptomatic Epilepsy

Symptomatic epilepsy can arise from: (1) head trauma, involving a penetrating injury to the brain; (2) brain tumors, both benign and malignant, that include meningiomas, astrocytomas, glioblastomas, oligidendromas, gangliogliomas, etc.; (3) bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral infections, especially Herpes simplex encephalitis and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV); (4) strokes; (5) dysplasias, where normal brain cells occupy an abnormal place in the brain; (6) chemical imbalances that can result from renal or hepatic failure, hypoxia, complications of pregnancy, treatment with aminophylline, phenothiazine antipsychotics, antidepressants, alcohol, cocaine, and other stimulants, and hormonal changes, e.g., estrogen. The penumbra resulting from a stroke can act as a seizure focus as can tumors.
