Limbic Encephalitis

Limbic encephalitis is a form of encephalitis, a disease characterised by inflammation of the brain. Limbic encephalitis is caused by autoimmunity: an abnormal state where the body produces antibodies against itself. Some cases are associated with cancer and some are not. – Wikipedia

  • Link: Autoantibodies to neuronal surface antigens in thyroid antibody-positive and -negative limbic encephalitis
    Background : Thyroid antibodies (Thy-Abs) are frequently detected in various autoimmune disorders in coexistence with other systemic autoantibodies. In association with an encephalopathy, they are often taken as evidence of Hashimoto’s encephalitis (HE). However, the presence of Thy-Abs in a cohort of limbic encephalitis (LE) patients and their association with anti-neuronal autoimmunity has not been […]

  • Link: Autoimmune Limbic Encephalitis With GAD Antibodies
    The neurologic presentation of limbic encephalitis is variable and when it occurs due to a rare cause the diagnosis may be problematic. We present a case of autoimmune limbic encephalitis due to glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody and consider the magnetic resonance imaging and antineural antibody screening aspects in the diagnosis of this entity. This study […]
