Treatment and prognostic factors for long-term outcome in patients with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis: an observational cohort study
Most patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis respond to immunotherapy; second-line immunotherapy is usually effective when first-line treatments fail, and outcomes continued to improve for up to 18 months after symptom onset. Expand
A clinical approach to diagnosis of autoimmune encephalitis
Through logical differential diagnosis, levels of evidence for autoimmune encephalitis (possible, probable, or definite) are achieved, which can lead to prompt immunotherapy. Expand
An activating NLRC4 inflammasome mutation causes autoinflammation with recurrent macrophage activation syndrome
A new monoallelic inflammasome defect is described that expands the monogenic autoinflammatory disease spectrum to include MAS and suggests new targets for therapy. Expand
Primary angiitis of the CNS
E Epidemiological, clinical, neuroradiagnostic, and laboratory findings have enhanced the diagnostic accuracy and recognition of PACNS mimics, however, many challenges to the understanding and management of the disease in children and adults remain. Expand
Takayasu arteritis in children and adolescents.
Takayasu arteritis is a devastating vasculitis of the aorta and its major branches and in children the disease presents with fever, arthralgias and hypertension. Expand
Clinical and laboratory characteristics and long-term outcome of pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus: a longitudinal study.
The most common clinical manifestations were arthritis, malar rash, nephritis, and central nervous system (CNS) disease, and patients with both renal and CNS disease had the highest SLE Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI) scores at diagnosis. Expand
Classification, presentation, and initial treatment of Wegener's granulomatosis in childhood.
The EULAR/PRES criteria minimally improved diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for Wegener's granulomatosis among a narrow spectrum of children with AAVs. Expand
Treatment and prognostic factors for long-term outcome in patients with anti-N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptor encephalitis: a cohort study
Background—Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis is an autoimmune disorder in which the use of immunotherapy and the long-term outcome have not been defined. Methods—In thisExpand
Central nervous system vasculitis in children
This review summarizes the recent data on diagnosis and differential diagnosis of primary and secondary central nervous system vasculitis in children and suggests an approach to diagnosis. Expand
IL-10R Polymorphisms Are Associated with Very-early-onset Ulcerative Colitis
This study identified the first splice site mutation in IL10RA resulting in infantile-onset IBD and expands the phenotype ofIL10RA polymorphisms to include both severe arthritis and VEO-UC. Expand
