Abstract

Limbic encephalitis (LE) is frequently associated with malignancy.Non- paraneoplastic variants of LE have been described in association with antibodies directed against cell-membrane antigens such as voltage gated potassium channel (VGKC), novel cell-membrane antigens (nCMAg), N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) and the glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD-Ab). Actually there aren't sufficient data to aid the diagnosis of this disorder and guide its management.We sought to address some of these issues by retrospectively analyzing data on a serie of patients with diagnosis of LE during a 6-year period.
