Autoimmunity in idiopathic epilepsies and encephalopathies of childhood

Subtitle:
Autoimmune epilepsy
Abstract:

Immune mechanisms are thought to be involved in the pathological disease process in a number of childhood epileptic syndromes and encephalitis. Of particular interest is the occurrence of autoantibodies to essential neuronal proteins, for example the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR), in the blood and spinal fluid in some of these patients.
