CT in autoimmune encephalitis with faciobrachial dystonic seizures.
Autoimmune encephalitis (AE) is increasingly recognized as a nonparaneoplastic disorder with autoantibodies to neuronal proteins. Although MRI is frequently unremarkable, PET imaging might contribute to identification of affected brain regions in dis

Faciobrachial dystonic seizures result from fronto-temporo-basalganglial network involvement.
•Faciobrachial dystonic seizures (FBDS) are caused by autoantibodies to leucine-rich glioma-inactivated1 proteins, a component of the voltage-gated potassium channel complex (VGKC-complex) and precede the clinical presentation of limbic encephalitis.

Basal ganglia T1 hyperintensity in LGI1-autoantibody faciobrachial dystonic seizures.
To characterize the clinical features and MRI abnormalities of leucine-rich glioma-inactivated 1 (LGI1)-autoantibody (Ab) faciobrachial dystonic seizures (FBDS).

LGI1-negative faciobrachial dystonic-like seizures originating from the insula.
We expand the differential diagnosis of LGI1-positive faciobrachial dystonic seizures (FBDS) by presenting a 67-year-old woman affected by seizures of similar semiology who was found to have insular epilepsy. We report the distinct characteristics of

Voltage-gated potassium channel antibody-associated limbic encephalitis.
We are emphasising the importance of considering a rare diagnosis, voltage-gated Potassium channel antibody-associated limbic encephalitis, in an 80-year-old gentleman who presented with memory impairment, seizure and hyponatraemia. He was found to h
