Isolated Psychiatric Episodes Rare, but Possible, in Common Form of Autoimmune Encephalitis

A small percentage of people diagnosed with a mysterious neurological condition may only experience psychiatric changes - such as delusional thinking, hallucinations, and aggressive behavior - according to a new study by researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

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.

AUTOIMMUNE ENCEPHALITIS SCREEN–A REVIEW OF RAPID DIAGNOSTIC SCREENING IN 600 PATIENTS OVER 5 YEARS

Autoimmune encephalitis is characterised by encephalopathy, seizures, memory disturbance and neuro–psychiatric symptoms. One of the initial antibodies described were those against the voltage gated potassium channel (VGKC),1 which causes limbic encephalitis (LE) often associated with hypontaremia. Later antibodies against N–methyl D–aspartate receptors (NMDAR) were found associated with ovarian teratoma,2 with a prominent neuropsychiatric onset and later developing involuntary movements, autonomic disturbance and respiratory difficulties. NMDAR LE is now known to occur mainly in a non–paraneoplastic setting. Antibodies have also been described against other glutamate receptors (AMPAR1, AMPAR2 etc) and also against GABAb receptors.
The original assay for VGKC was don...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK. Find the best Christmas presents too.

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.
