Other Neurological Illnesses

Any illness that affects the brain can also impair memory. Less common neurological illnesses include encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain caused by a virus or microorganism), normal pressure hydrocephalus (an excess of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles of the brain), Huntington's disease (a genetically transmitted degenerative brain disorder), meningitis (an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord), and primary and metastatic brain tumors. These conditions are usually diagnosed quickly, as the initial symptoms are readily recognizable.
