Moreover, CSF had mild lymphocytic pleocytosis 5 cells Case of acute limbic encefxlite associated with SLE accompanied with anti-glutamate receptor antibodies. Limbic encephalitis LE is a rare neurological syndrome that selectively affects the structures of the limbic system. Lastly, the clinical picture resembles that of pharmacologic or genetic models in which the antigen is disrupted.

All patients with LE should undergo a neuroimaging evaluation of the medial temporal area.

Efforts should be made to establish whether this association is pathologic. Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: In the follow up, it became normal without epileptic activity not shown.

Thank you for updating your details. The lateral temporal lobe and insula are less commonly involved, whereas the basal ganglia, in contrast, are frequently involved, helpful in distinguishing it from HSV encephalitis which characteristically spares the basal ganglia 8.

Rosenfeld M, Dalmau J. Therefore, with regard to ALE and PLE, there are many types of antibodies against extra or intracellular structures, such as: A fully and persistent recovery of her cognitive abilities was observed Table 1 up until her last evaluation. This article intends to contribute by reporting a possible case of LE with active SLE, adding more data to this discussion.

PET scan Case 4: Paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis in an elderly patient with small cell lung carcinoma.

Thirdly, the effects of the antibodies are often reversible. Other search option s Alphabetical list. It is believed that a convergence point between the three conditions involves an autoimmunity component shared by all of them. Most authors limit the term to autoimmune limbic encephalitis, including both paraneoplastic and non-paraneoplastic causes.

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

Detailed information Professionals Review article English Clinical practice guidelines Deutsch The patient reported previous diagnosis of SLE as well as endometrial adenocarcinoma in and papillary urothelial carcinoma inwith a curative treatment in the past, and no complaints related to these diseases. In the management of ALE, it is important to highlight the llmbica of early treatment In contrast, autoimmune limbic encephalitis is associated with antibodies to synaptic or cell surface antigens.


The main limitation of this article is the absence of enxefalite antibody tests. InBrierley et al.

Video-electroencephalography was performed on the third day of immunosuppressive treatment, while using oxcarbazepine, and showed normal background activity without epileptic discharges. Unfortunately, there is considerable heterogeneity in how the term limbic encephalitis is used. This case highlighted a need for rapid treatment when an autoimmune cause is suspected. These are likely to contribute directly to the pathology of the condition.
