Transcript of Raymond
aggression (Frontal lobe)
memory loss (cerebellum) Patient: Raymond, age 10 Patient #3- A woman brings her 10-year-old son, Raymond, in to see you. He’s been overly aggressive and angry lately, but she has attributed this to her divorce from Raymond’s father. Last night, Raymond attended a party at his friend’s house. After a night of laser tag and little sleep, Raymond started shaking and convulsing. He stopped before his mom arrived, but she still wanted to get him checked out. Raymond does not really remember falling to the floor, but he does remember that he smelled a very unpleasant odor right before he went down. Diagnosis The aggression, seizures and memory loss all points to epilepsy
Epilepsy- what is it? seizures occur without warning
include staring into space of full out spams
can involve bad smell or strong odor originating from the patient Complications Damage of the Frontal lobe = aggression
complications in the lymbic system = anger and seizures
corruption of the cerebellum = memory loss The Prognosis: The nerve signals become unbalanced causing random spasms Raymond has a chance to live a outwardly normal life and will be put through various therapies to quell the seizures and aggressiveness if patient refuses these treatments he may become cognitively impaired and have a shorter life expectancy sources:
