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
Encephalitis with refractory seizures, status epilepticus, and antibodies to the GABAA receptor: a case series, characterisation of the antigen, and analysis of the effects of antibodies
High titres of serum and CSF GABAA receptor antibodies are associated with a severe form of encephalitis with seizures, refractory status epilepticus, or both and are potentially treatable. Expand
Overlapping demyelinating syndromes and anti–N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate receptor encephalitis
To report the clinical, radiological, and immunological association of demyelinating disorders with anti–N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis.
Consensus Treatment Plans for Chronic Nonbacterial Osteomyelitis Refractory to Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs and/or With Active Spinal Lesions
To develop standardized treatment regimens for chronic nonbacterial osteomyelitis (CNO), also known as chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO), to enable comparative effectiveness treatmentExpand

A 10-year retrospective review of Salmonella infections at the Children's Hospital in London, Ontario.
Whether younger children, particularly infants younger than 12 weeks of age, experience higher morbidity than older children is examined and a wider knowledge of the epidemiological risk factors for Salmonella infection may improve diagnosis. Expand
Childhood primary angiitis of the central nervous system: identifying disease trajectories and early risk factors for persistently higher disease activity.
Distinct subtypes of childhood PACNS have unique disease activity trajectories and early recognition of this high-risk cohort may enable the treating physician to initiate targeted therapies and prevent long-term brain injury. Expand
Diagnosing central nervous system vasculitis in children
Improved understanding of cPACNS facilitates a tailored diagnostic approach that results in earlier diagnosis and initiation of therapy for this potentially reversible condition, and observational studies have shown that early diagnosis and aggressive treatment lead to improved neurological outcomes and lower mortality rates in patients with c PACNS.

A144: Resident's Guide to Rheumatology Guide Mobile Application: An International Needs Assessment
In preliminary assessments, uptake of the Guide was broader than intended and it was used by trainees to help with clinical decision‐making, learning and teaching. Expand
Clinical approach to the diagnosis of autoimmune encephalitis in the pediatric patient
Dosing AE is based on the combination of a clinical history consistent with pediatric AE and supportive diagnostic testing, which includes but is not dependent on antibody testing. Expand
