CSF findings in patients with voltage gated potassium channel antibody associated limbic encephalitis.

Abstract:

UNLABELLED: Recently, a new subtype of limbic encephalitis (LE) has been described, serologically characterized by the presence of antibodies against voltage gated potassium channels (VGKC, to be called VGKC-LE). Only little is known about CSF findings in this new disorder. Here we report the results of 29 lumbar punctures in 17 patients with VGKC-LE.
