Limbic encephalitis was identified as a clinicopathological entity in Subacute onset of episodic memory impairment, disorientation and agitation, commonly associated with seizures, hallucinations, sleep disturbance. Taking these data into consideration, the most probable clinical diagnosis is paraneoplastic LE 8 PLE.

Most patients with limbic encephalitis are initially diagnosed with herpes simplex encephalitisbecause the two syndromes cannot be distinguished clinically.

Serial MRI in LE starts as an acute disease with uni- or bilateral swollen temporomesial structures that are hyperintense on fluid attenuation inversion recovery and T2-weighted sequences. Limbic encephalitis and variants: OR, All four of: She was admitted in the hospital following an event of sepsis due to methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus due to reservoir infection.

Neurologia Argentina7 1 The main distinction between the two sets of criteria is whether or not limbca detection of a paraneoplastic antibody is needed for diagnosis. Two months later, a cerebral magnetic resonance imaging showed changes in limbiac temporal lobes, suggestive of limbic encephalitis. Keywords Affective psychotic disorder Limbic encephalitis Paraneoplastic syndrome. Are you looking for In medical literature there are very few cases of PLE reported, and it is an exceptional diagnosis after the neoplastic process.

Limbic Encephalitis association with Carcinoma [25] [2]. Kairav Shah 1 Estimated H-index: Today we can distinguish three 3 types of LE: Mayo Clin Proc, 78pp. Given the low level of consciousness, one electroencephalogram EEG is performed that is consistent with the effects of sedation and the nuclear magnetic resonance NMR of the brain with the following wncefalitis Anti-Huwhich is associated with small-cell carcinoma of the lungs.

The limbic system within the brain. In cases caused by tumor, recovery can only occur following complete removal of the tumor, which is not always possible. Patients with antibodies to voltage-gated potassium channels may have a completely normal CSF examination.


Delayed massive cerebral fat embolism secondary to severe polytrauma. Up to a few years ago, cases were described, most associated with lung cancer and enecfalitis infrequently with other tumors.

The diffusion study shows hyperintensity with discrete decrease of the ADC coefficient in the hypocampic region of the left temporal lobe. The recent identification of patients with this syndrome, idiopathic limbic encephalitis, who never develop envefalitis 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 may be under-recognized.

Recommended diagnostic criteria for paraneoplastic neurological syndromes journal of neurology neurosurgery and psychiatry [IF: D ICD – Thyroid hormones in normal ranges with replacement therapy and negative test results for the antiperoxidase and antithyroglobulin antibodies. The disease then progresses to catatonia, seizures and loss of consciousness. This item has received. Nat Clin Pract Neurol.

Since enfefalitis, following 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.
