Video: Epilepsy – Amy’s Seizure – University of Utah Hospital

We finally got the video back of Amy’s seizure in the U of U hospital during her video EEG. The brain frequencies are on the right and you can clearly see the massive change in brainwaves during an Epileptic seizure. It’s very difficult for me to watch this video. My wife is so strong… I don’t know how she stays so positive having to live with this condition. We hope a cure can be found some day.

Above is the text accompanying this video. It is slightly disturbing but shows a young woman having a seizure in real-time along side her EEG study.

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.
