OBJECTIVE To describe clinical characteristics and immunotherapy responses in patients with autoimmune epilepsy. DESIGN Observational, retrospective case series. SETTING Mayo Clinic Health System. PATIENTS Thirty-two patients with an exclusive (n=11) or predominant (n=21) seizure presentation in whom an autoimmune etiology was suspected (on the basis(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical features and MRI abnormalities of leucine-rich glioma-inactivated 1 (LGI1)-autoantibody (Ab) faciobrachial dystonic seizures (FBDS). METHODS Forty-eight patients with LGI1-Ab encephalopathy were retrospectively identified by searching our clinical and serologic database from January 1, 2002, to June 1, 2015. Of(More)
The impact of functional imaging tests on the decision-making and planning process for epilepsy surgery has never been prospectively assessed. We prospectively evaluated 50 consecutively eligible patients whose noninvasive evaluations showed nonlocalized findings and determined how their SISCOM (subtraction ictal SPECT [single photon emission computed(More)
We describe the clinical and neuroradiologic correlates in two patients with the clinical picture of CBD and alien leg phenomena. The MRI brain scan in both had unique focal abnormalities in the corresponding leg area of the homunculus that may be the substrate for the alien limb features.
OBJECT Anterior nuclear (AN) stimulation has been reported to reduce the frequency of seizures, in some cases dramatically; however, it has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. The anterior nucleus is difficult to target because of its sequestered location, partially surrounded by the ventricle. It has traditionally been targeted by(More)
PURPOSE Lithium-pilocarpine induced status epilepticus (LPSE) causes selective and age-dependent neuronal death, although the mechanism of maturation-related injury has not yet been clarified. The activating transcription factor-2 (ATF-2) protein is essential for the normal development of mammalian brain and is activated by c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK). It(More)
OBJECTIVE To validate predictive models for neural antibody positivity and immunotherapy response in epilepsy. METHODS We conducted a retrospective study of epilepsy cases at Mayo Clinic (Rochester-MN; Scottsdale-AZ, and Jacksonville-FL) in whom autoimmune encephalopathy/epilepsy/dementia autoantibody testing profiles were requested(More)
