Levetiracetam effect on adult-onset temporal lobe epilepsy with positive voltage-gated potassium channel antibody.

Temporal lobe epilepsy is considered to be the most frequent of all epileptic syndromes. Recently, several retrospective studies suggest that limbic e...

Long-term epilepsy surgery outcomes in patients with PET-positive, MRI-negative temporal lobe epilepsy.
This study compared the long-term efficacy of anterior temporal lobectomy (ATL) for the treatment of medically refractory temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) in patients who presented with ipsilateral temporal PET hypometabolism and nonlesional magnetic res

Temporal lobe epilepsy with amygdala enlargement: a subtype of temporal lobe epilepsy.
Some recent studies suggest that some imaging-negative temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) had significant amygdala enlargement (AE). Contradictory data were also reported in previous studies regarding the association between AE and TLE. The present study w

Brain Infiltration of Immune Cells in CASPR2-Antibody Associated Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy with Hippocampal Sclerosis.
Antibodies directed against neuronal surface antigens have recently been identified in patients with focal temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) of unknown cause and mesial TLE with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS), thereby emphasizing the role of autoimmunity

Comparison of temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis and temporal lobe epilepsies due to other etiologies.
This study compares the clinical characteristics of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis (mTLE-HS) with those who have temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) due to other etiologies.

Surgical outcome in patients with MRI-negative, PET-positive temporal lobe epilepsy.
The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term surgical outcomes of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-negative, fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET)-positive patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and compare them wi

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis associated with positive voltage gated potassium channel complex antibody.
Voltage gated potassium channel (VGKC) complex antibodies are associated with encephalopathies both in adult and children. The incidence of antibodies in the central nervous system demyelinating disorders is increasingly reported although their direc

Multicentric Castleman's disease with voltage-gated potassium channel antibody-positive limbic encephalitis: a case report.
Castleman's disease is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder which occurs in localized and multicentric forms and can mimic lymphoma. Despite its well-known association with certain autoimmune diseases, including paraneoplastic pemphigus and myasthenia
