Acute myocardial infarction is associated with a low but significant risk of stroke. Ischemic strokes are the predominant type of stroke seen in non-ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction, and most ischemic strokes are cardioembolic. Intracerebral hemorrhage can occur after thrombolysis for acute myocardial infarction and markedly increases the risk of death and disability.

Neurologic syndromes associated with measles include measles inclusion body encephalitis, acute post-infectious measles encephalomyelitis, primary measles encephalitis, and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis. Neurologic sequelae of measles are severe and may carry a substantial risk of disability and even death.

Neurocutaneous syndromes are a diverse group of congenital developmental diseases that affect the nervous system and the skin and have systemic lesions in multiple organ systems, including bone, endocrine glands, eye, kidney, heart, and lung. They can produce benign tumors as well as malignancies. Genetic mutations are identified in most of these syndromes.

Thalamic and midbrain infarcts are infrequent; however, both are associated with a large spectrum of clinical manifestations. Decreased level of consciousness, vertical gaze paresis, and contralateral hypoesthesia are the main clinical manifestations of paramedian thalamic infarcts. Oculomotor and supranuclear vertical gaze palsies are the most localizing manifestations of midbrain infarction. In general, the neurologic status improves over time.

Sleep is a powerful enhancer of epileptic features. Synchronized non-REM sleep facilitates seizures, whereas desynchronized REM sleep dampens seizure occurrence. The presence of nocturnal seizures affects the regular profile of the sleep architecture. Sleep-related seizures mostly affect conventional sleep measures, whereas nocturnal interictal discharges basically have a destabilizing impact on cyclic alternating pattern parameters.
