BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (anti-NMDAR) encephalitis is the most common type of autoimmune synaptic encephalitis and it often responds to treatment. We analyzed the clinical characteristics of anti-NMDAR encephalitis in Korea. METHODS Serum and/or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of adult patients (aged ≥18 years) with encephalitis(More)
Leucine-rich glioma inactivated 1 (LGI1) was recently identified as a target protein in autoimmune synaptic encephalitis, a rare condition associated with autoantibodies against structures in the neuronal synapse. Studies dealing with LGI1 are small in number and the various outcomes of different therapeutic regimens are not well studied. Here, we analyzed(More)
Encephalitis associated with anti-γ-aminobutyric acid-B (GABAB) receptor antibodies has been identified recently. However, only a few cases have been reported to date and its clinical manifestations and prognosis have not been investigated systematically. We identified five cases of GABAB encephalitis in Korea. Here we present the clinical features,(More)
Bounding volume hierarchies (BVHs) are widely used to accelerate the performance of various geometric and graphics applications. These applications include ray tracing, collision detection, visibility queries, dynamic simulation, and motion planning. These applications typically precompute BVHs of input models and traverse the BVHs at runtime in order to(More)
We present a cache-oblivious ray reordering method for ray tracing. Many global illumination methods such as path tracing and photon mapping use ray tracing and generate lots of rays to simulate various realistic visual effects. However, these rays tend to be very incoherent and show lower cache utilizations during ray tracing of models. In order to address(More)
Ray tracing and collision detection are widely used for providing high-quality visualizations and user interactions. In these algorithms, we need to detect intersecting primitives between two input objects (e.g., a ray and a 3D object in ray tracing and two 3D objects in collision detection). In order to efficiently detect these intersecting primitives,(More)
Amphiphysin antibody causes paraneoplastic stiff-person syndrome and can also result in a variety of neurological manifestations. Here, we investigated the clinical spectrum of 20 patients with non-stiff anti-amphiphysin syndrome and their responses to immunotherapy. The most common neurological manifestation was limbic encephalitis (n=10), followed by(More)
OBJECTIVE Secondary bilateral synchrony (SBS) indicates bilaterally synchronous epileptiform discharges arising from a focal cortical origin. The present study aims to investigate SBS in partial epilepsy with regard to surgical outcomes and intracranial EEG findings. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed consecutive patients who underwent epilepsy surgery(More)
We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of antineuronal antibodies in a nationwide cohort of patients with encephalopathy of unknown etiology. We screened 1699 patients with idiopathic encephalopathy who were referred from 70 hospitals across Korea for autoimmune synaptic and classic paraneoplastic antibodies. Those with cerebellar degeneration, sensory(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine efficacy and safety of rituximab treatment as a second-line immunotherapy treatment for autoimmune limbic encephalitis (ALE) and to determine factors associated with functional improvement and favorable outcome following rituximab treatment. METHODS We recruited 80 patients with ALE who were treated with rituximab as a second-line(More)
