An 11-year retrospective experience of antibodies against the voltage-gated potassium channel (VGKC) complex from a tertiary neurological centre.

Acquired diseases classically associated with VGKC-complex antibodies include peripheral nerve hyperexcitability (PNH), Morvan's syndrome, limbic ence...

Complex Rectovaginal Fistula-an Experience at a Tertiary Care Centre.
Complex rectovaginal fistulae are difficult to manage. With an initial failed attempt, a simple fistula becomes complex and the success rate of a subsequent repair decreases. A review of our prospectively maintained records over a period of 16 years

Encephalitis due to antibodies to voltage gated potassium channel (VGKC) with cerebellar involvement in a teenager.
Encephalitis due to antibodies to voltage gated potassium channel (VGKC) typically presents with limbic encephalitis and medial temporal lobe involvement on neuroimaging. We describe a case of 13 year girl female with encephalitis due to antibodies t

Delayed LGI1 seropositivity in voltage-gated potassium channel (VGKC)-complex antibody limbic encephalitis.
We utilise a clinical case to highlight why exclusion of voltage-gated potassium channel (VGKC)-complex autoantibody testing in serological evaluation of patients may delay or miss the diagnosis. A 68-year-old man presented with increasing involuntar

Takayasu arteritis in childhood: retrospective experience from a tertiary referral centre in the United Kingdom.
Takayasu arteritis (TA) is an idiopathic large-vessel vasculitis affecting the aorta and its major branches. Although the disease rarely affects children, it does occur, even in infants. The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical featur

Axonal dysfunction with voltage gated potassium channel complex antibodies.
Although autoantibodies targeted against voltage-gated potassium channel (VGKC)-associated proteins have been identified in limbic encephalitis (LE) and acquired neuromyotonia (aNMT), the role of these antibodies in disease pathophysiology has not be

Infective endocarditis: a tertiary referral centre experience from Turkey.
We aimed to define the current characteristics of infective endocarditis (IE) in a part of Turkey.

Persistent anterograde amnesia following limbic encephalitis associated with antibodies to the voltage-gated potassium channel complex.
Limbic encephalitis (LE) associated with antibodies to the voltage-gated potassium channel complex (VGKC) is a potentially reversible cause of cognitive impairment. Despite the prominence of cognitive dysfunction in this syndrome, little is known abo

Neonatal necrotising fasciitis managed conservatively: an experience from a tertiary centre.
Conventional therapy for neonatal necrotising fasciitis (NF) involves resuscitation and aggressive surgical debridement of necrotic tissue. This approach adds surgical stress in septicaemic neonates with low reserves. The present study reports a more

Conjoined twins: experience in an Irish tertiary centre.
Conjoined twins are rare, with a reported incidence of 0.19 per 10,000 pregnancies in Europe. We discuss four spontaneous conjoined twin pregnancies presenting to a tertiary referral centre from 2005 to 2011, diagnosed on antenatal dating ultrasound.
