Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) associated with ovarian cancer and voltage-gated potassium channel antibodies: A case report.
•We report a case of PRES in conjunction with high grade serous ovarian carcinoma•There is a documented association between chemotherapy agents and PRES•Paraneoplastic panel was positive for voltage-gated potassium channel antibodies•Paraneoplastic w

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

Leucine-Rich Glioma Inactivated-1 and Voltage-Gated Potassium Channel Autoimmune Encephalitis Associated with Ischemic Stroke: A Case Report.
Autoimmune encephalitis is associated with a wide variety of antibodies and clinical presentations. Voltage-gated potassium channel (VGKC) antibodies are a cause of autoimmune non-paraneoplastic encephalitis characterized by memory impairment, psychi

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

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

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

The isolated voltage sensing domain of the Shaker potassium channel forms a voltage-gated cation channel.
Domains in macromolecular complexes are often considered structurally and functionally conserved while energetically coupled to each other. In the modular voltage-gated ion channels the central ion-conducting pore is surrounded by four voltage sensin
