Neuroimaging in status epilepticus secondary to paraneoplastic autoimmune encephalitis.
To describe the characteristic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of paraneoplastic autoimmune encephalitis in patients with new-onset status epilepticus.

Myoclonic status epilepticus as a presentation of caspr2 antibody-associated autoimmune encephalitis.
We present a case of autoimmune encephalitis associated with antibodies targeting contact in-associated protein-like 2. This case is notable because of the presentation with myoclonic status epilepticus and the prolonged clinical course of refractory

Toxicant exposure and bioaccumulation: a common and potentially reversible cause of cognitive dysfunction and dementia.
Juxtaposed alongside the ongoing rise in the incidence and prevalence of dementia, is the surge of recent research confirming widespread exposure and bioaccumulation of chemical toxicants. Evidence from sources such as the Centers for Disease Control

Hashimoto's Encephalitis: Unusual Cause of Reversible Dementia.
Hashimoto's encephalopathy (HE) is a poorly understood and often misdiagnosed rare autoimmune disease with varied neurological and psychiatric features. The low prevalence and varied clinical features coupled with unclear pathogenesis and histopathol

IgG4-related leptomeningitis: a reversible cause of rapidly progressive cognitive decline.
Immunoglobulin G4-related diseases (IgG4-RD) are a newly recognized category of diseases. CNS involvement in IgG4-RD includes hypophysitis(1) and intracranial or spinal manifestations of hypertrophic pachymeningitis.(2,3) We present a unique case of

"Autoimmune Epilepsy": Encephalitis With Autoantibodies for Epileptologists.
Autoimmune encephalitides may account for epilepsies of so far unknown cause. These "autoimmune epilepsies" may respond well to immunotherapy. More than a dozen autoantibodies have been found with this constellation; therefore, broad autoantibody tes

Encephalopathy Associated with Autoimmune Thyroid Disease: A Potentially Reversible Condition.
Autoimmune thyroid disease may occasionally associate with unspecific neurological symptoms, which are more commonly insidious, include cognitive or behavioural symptoms, and may associate with tremor, myoclonus, or ataxia. We report a 61-year-old fe

Reversible and irreversible cranial MRI findings associated with status epilepticus.
There is limited information on neuroimaging changes in status epilepticus (SE). The objective of this study was to characterize the abnormalities associated with SE in cranial MRI of patients with SE.

Pathophysiology of mitochondrial disease causing epilepsy and status epilepticus.
Epilepsy is part of the clinical phenotype in nearly 40% of children with mitochondrial disease, yet the underlying molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood. Energy depletion has been postulated as the cause of mitochondrial epilepsy, but if thi
