Case 7 Encefalitf 7. Glutamate receptor antibodies in neurological diseases: Moreover, a good response was observed to immunotherapy, not seen with paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis, which is associated with poor response.

Encephalitis and antibodies to synaptic and neuronal cell surface proteins. For instance, some patients previously thought to have viral encephalitis will be found to have a treatable autoimmune disease. Immunotherapy-responsive dementias and encephalopathies.

Disease definition Limbic encephalitis with anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate NMDA receptor antibodies is a recently described type of encephalitis see this term affecting young women with teratoma of ovary see this term and associated with antibodies that react with neuronal cell surface auto-antigens. In this particularly case, autoimmunity was the most relevant factor associated with limbic encephalitis given negative neoplastic screening. Limbic encephalitis with N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antibodies Prevalence: A manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus in the central nervous system.

The presence of other surface membrane antibodies is possible, since ,imbica are associations among different types of these as mentioned above. InBrierley et al.

Nat Rev Neurol ; PET scan Case 4: Thus, Fluorodeoxyglucose-PET is useful for detecting many occult malignancies but has limited utility for ovarian teratomas. As clinical response was effective, it was decided to maintain the patient under this treatment regimen for at least 6 months to consolidate immunosuppression, with monthly likbica administered in the hospital setting. Knowledge about this clinical association and the pathophysiological mechanisms involved needs to be furthered.

Encfealite should be made to establish whether this association is pathologic.

Thank you for updating your details. Moreover, limbic encephalitis with active SLE, although with a poorly understood pathophysiology, could also share some similarities and differences in this picture. Another way of dividing limmbica encephalitis is on the grounds of whether the antibodies are against intracellular antigens or cell surface antigens.
