This chapter describes electroencephalographic (EEG) abnormalities in inflammatory and cerebrovascular diseases, traumatic brain injury, and headache. It focuses on a practical and clinical approach and covers the most important diseases from this extensive field. Particular attention has been paid to viral and autoimmune encephalitis, prion disease, ischemic stroke, posttraumatic coma, and migraine. Several signature patterns are discussed that facilitate early and accurate diagnosis. The use of EEG in guiding treatment decisions and predicting prognosis is reviewed.
