The main limitation of this article is the absence of neuronal antibody tests. Psychiatric symptoms, including psychosis, depression and behavior disorder, have also been reported in over half of cases 2,8. Although it is still considered a classical paraneoplastic syndrome, its association with autoimmune disease has been extensively studied.

Paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis with prominent neuropsychiatric apathy.

Therefore, with regard to ALE and PLE, there are many types of antibodies against extra or intracellular structures, such as: In general, ALE associated with SLE has a satisfactory response to immunosuppressive treatment RITbut the limbcia of this association is poorly understood and may include an autoimmunity component.

The importance of recognizing faciobrachial dystonic seizures in rapidly progressive dementias.

Future studies should explore which antibodies are related to neuropsychiatric lupus and the pathologic mechanism triggered by them. In contrast, autoimmune limbic encephalitis is associated with antibodies to synaptic or cell surface antigens. This case highlighted a need for rapid treatment when an autoimmune cause is suspected. Those with non-tumor related autoimmune encephalitis have a variable epidemiology but are mostly young patients with a female predilection 8.

Am J Case Encefxlite ; These symptoms were followed by anterograde amnesia and temporal disorientation initiated 3 days before the hospitalization. In this context, SLE for instance can mimic or be associated with limbic encephalitis.

In addition, there may be different degrees of involvement in extra-limbic-system tissues such as the cerebellum, brainstem and thalamus.

The most common neuropsychiatric syndromes attributed to SLE are seizure disorders, cerebrovascular disease, acute confusional states and neuropathies. Other authors, Graus and Saiz, revised the criteria, changing some accepted clinical characteristics for diagnosis under this criteria, the patient has to have all four items: Autoimmune encephalitis can be divided broadly into two groups, based on whether or not antibodies are the result of an underlying tumor: Her semantic and phonemic fluency were substantially encevalite.
