We investigated the presence of autoantibodies against glutamate receptor (GluR) epsilon2 in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples from 12 consecutive patients with acute encephalitis/encephalopathy by immunoblotting using recombinant GluR epsilon2 as antigen. In 4 patients, IgM autoantibodies against GluR epsilon2 were detected in CSF in the early… CONTINUE READING
