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

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

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease-Like Periodic Sharp Wave Complexes in Voltage-Gated Potassium Channel-Complex Antibodies Encephalitis: A Case Report.
Voltage-gated potassium channel-complex antibodies (VGKC-cAbs) encephalitis, a treatable autoantibody encephalopathy, has been previously reported to clinically mimic sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Among available clinical clues to distinguish t

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

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

Gold nanoparticle-spermidine complex blocks the inward rectifier potassium channel.
A previous study showed that negatively charged gold nanoparticles block ion pores by binding to the sulfur group of the cysteine loop of the ion channel when small molecules like amine lead the nanoparticles inside the ion pore. Cells were voltage c

Pharmacogenetic and case-control study on potassium channel related gene variants and genetic generalized epilepsy.
Potassium channels are the targets of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), which play important roles in the etiology of epilepsy. KCNA1 and KCNA2 encode mammalian Kv1.1 and Kv1.2 channels, which are essential roles in the initiation and shaping of action pot

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
