Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis - Wikipedia

Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, also known as NMDA receptor antibody encephalitis, is an acute form of encephalitis that is potentially lethal but has a high probability for recovery with treatment. It is caused by an autoimmune reaction, primarily against the NR1 subunit of the NMDA receptor ( N-methyl D-aspartate receptor).

Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis and Vaccination

Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis and Vaccination | AntiNMDA | Scoop.it
Anti-N-methyl-d-aspartate (Anti-NMDA) receptor encephalitis is an acute autoimmune neurological disorder. The cause of this disease is often unknown, and previous studies revealed that it might be caused by a virus, vaccine or tumor. It occurs more often in females than in males. Several cases were reported to be related to vaccination such as the H1N1 vaccine and tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis and polio vaccines. In this study, we reported an anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis case that may be caused by Japanese encephalitis vaccination. To investigate the association between anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis and vaccination, we analyzed the phylogenetic relationship of the microRNAs, which significantly regulate these vaccine viruses or bacteria, and the phylogenetic relationship of these viruses and bacteria. This reveals that anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis may be caused by Japanese encephalitis vaccination, as well as H1N1 vaccination or tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis and polio vaccinations, from the phylogenetic viewpoint.

Anti-N-Methyl-D-Aspartate Receptor Encephalitis in HIV Infection

Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (anti-NMDAR) encephalitis is a rare condition characterized by emotional and behavioral disturbances, dyskinesias, and extrapyramidal signs. It occurs in young women of reproductive age and is classically described as a paraneoplastic phenomenon. We present a 36-year-old, HIV-positive female who was admitted to the hospital in an acute confusional state, with a stiff posture, periods of motor agitation, and myoclonic jerks of the hands. Her mental state progressively deteriorated. Without evidence of infection, the presence of anti-NMDAR antibodies both in serum and cerebrospinal fluid clinched the diagnosis of autoimmune encephalitis. No evidence of neoplastic disease was found, and the beneficial response to immunosuppressive therapy was exceptional. This is the first report of anti-NMDAR encephalitis in an HIV-infected individual, reminding us that autoimmune encephalitis should be included in the differential diagnosis of a young patient presenting in an acute confusional state.

Rebha Chalise was an active, happy teenager pursuing a psychology degree at Oklahoma Christian University, but all of that changed rapidly one day in 2012. Numbness in her limbs, speech and motor skills deterioration were ruled out as migraine, stroke and meningitis. Eventually, her physician at a local hospital referred her to the neurology specialists at The University of Kansas Hospital where she was diagnosed with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. Treatment required a medically induced coma and time in the neuro ICU.
