On March 2, 2009, something snapped inside Paul Michael Nelson. In the middle of the night, his parents found the 7-year-old boy stabbing the door of the family’s home office with a kitchen knife, trying to get at a computer that was off-limits after his bedtime. When they stopped him, he flopped around the floor on his knees, barking like a dog. He tore at blankets with his teeth and spoke in gibberish.

My former neighbor’s daughter, whom I’ll call “Ricki,” had it all—a great job, great little Manhattan apartment, great life. Only in her early 20s, she already had accomplished much in the fashion world.

Lancet Neurology publishes paper on brain imaging and diagnosis of autoimmune encephalitis - Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance | AntiNMDA | Scoop.it
It is often difficult to clinically diagnosis autoimmune encephalitis because patients’ symptoms can be so widely varied. In the Sept. 2016, issue of The Lancet Neurology, Francesc Graus and colleagues proposed an initial diagnostic work-up relying on conventional neurological evaluation and standard diagnostic tests such as MRI, CSF sampling, and EEG. This approach would enable clinicians to make …
