If an associated tumour is found, then recovery is not possible until the tumour is removed. The recent identification of patients with this syndrome, idiopathic limbic encephalitis, who never develop cancer and have high titers of antibodies to voltage-gated potassium channels VGKC and an excellent response to immunosuppressive therapy, has extended the etiological spectrum and suggests that the syndrome encefalitus be under-recognized.

Romy Hoque 8 Estimated H-index: Swelling and hyperintensity may persist over months to years, but in most cases progressive kimbica atrophy develops. Neurologist, 13pp. Spiegel 8 Estimated H-index: The diagnosis of limbic encephalitis is extremely difficult and it is usual for the diagnosis to ilmbica delayed for weeks. Taking these data into consideration, the most probable clinical diagnosis is paraneoplastic LE 8 PLE. Some cases are associated with cancer and some are not.

Granulocytosis Multicentric reticulohistiocytosis Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis. Signal hyperintensity in the hypocampic region of both temporal lobes of left predominance. The main distinction between the two sets of criteria is whether or not the detection of a paraneoplastic antibody is needed for diagnosis. Up to a few years ago, cases were described, most associated with lung cancer and more infrequently with other tumors. Update on paraneoplastic neurological syndromes. The diffusion study shows hyperintensity with discrete decrease of the ADC coefficient in the hypocampic region of the left temporal lobe.


Patients with antibodies to voltage-gated potassium channels may have a completely normal CSF examination. Two months later, a cerebral magnetic resonance imaging showed changes in both temporal lobes, suggestive of limbic encephalitis.

Sincefollowing the publication of a case report of a year-old teenager of Indian descent from South Africa who developed subacute memory loss subsequent to herpes simplex type 1 encephalitis, [6] similar cases of non-paraneoplastic LE have been described, as has its association with auto-antibodies and response to steroid.
