To identify distinct clusters of children with inflammatory brain diseases based on clinical, laboratory, and imaging features at presentation, to assess which features contribute strongly to the development of clusters, and to compare additional features between the identified clusters. 
Pediatric inflammatory brain diseases: a diagnostic approach.
TLDR
This review examines children presenting with new onset neuropsychiatric deficits with autoimmune-mediated inflammatory brain diseases, which represents a rapidly evolving area of medicine. Expand
SPECTRUM OF PEDIATRIC INFLAMMATORY BRAIN DISEASE Autoimmune-mediated pediatric inflammatory brain disease is an umbrella term encompassing a illiams
Purpose of review Autoimmune-mediated inflammatory brain diseases represent a rapidly evolving area of medicine. The expanding spectrum of disease challenges providers as they strive to accuratelyExpand
Treatment of CNS Vasculitis in Children
TLDR
This review of the most important adult and pediatric literature on therapy of primary CNS vasculitis concludes that future new biomarker discoveries and increased knowledge on the pathophysiology are key for developing targeted treatment regimens. Expand
An update on multiple sclerosis in children: diagnosis, therapies, and prospects for the future
TLDR
The clinical features of acute demyelinating syndromes in children and risk factors that increase the likelihood of a diagnosis of MS are discussed. Expand
Central nervous system vasculitis in adults and children.
TLDR
Treatment of PACNS should be tailored to the disease subtypes and clinical symptoms, and should include medications to control symptoms in order to support and enhance the child's or adult's ability to actively participate in rehabilitation. Expand
Childhood Central Nervous System Vasculitis
TLDR
To learn about the presentation, pathogenesis, evaluation, differential diagnosis, and management of childhood central nervous system vasculitis, visit www.clinicaltrials.gov/svculitis. Expand
Cognitive Outcomes of Childhood Primary CNS Vasculitis
TLDR
Children with small-vessel CNS vasculitis are more likely to demonstrate deficits in intellectual functioning than are those with large-vessels disease, and children with both types of CNS vasulitis demonstrate relatively poor working memory and processing speed. Expand
The growing spectrum of antibody-associated inflammatory brain diseases in children
TLDR
One in 4 children diagnosed with an AB-associated IBrainD has function-limiting residual neurologic deficits; patients with aquaporin-4 autoimmunity showed characteristic focal Neurologic deficits. Expand
Immune-Mediated Diseases of the Central Nervous System: A Specificity-Focused Diagnostic Paradigm.
TLDR
Recognizing aberrant immunologic activity as the cause of neurologic dysfunction requires establishing as precise a neuroanatomic and functional phenotype as possible, and a diagnostic and therapeutic strategy that stabilizes the patient and maintains a broad differential diagnosis that includes immune-mediated conditions. Expand
Cluster and Multiple Correspondence Analyses in Rheumatology: Paths to Uncovering Relationships in a Sea of Data.
TLDR
Researcher expertise was determined to be the main barrier to considering these approaches, whereas education and collaborating with a biostatistician were suggested ways forward. Expand

Distinguishing features in the presentations of childhood inflammatory brain diseases at a tertiary-care centre
TLDR
The aim of this study was to characterize and compare the clinical, laboratory, and imaging features at presentation for the different childhood IBrainD at the authors' institution. Expand
Diagnosing central nervous system vasculitis in children
TLDR
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.

Childhood primary angiitis of the central nervous system: identifying disease trajectories and early risk factors for persistently higher disease activity.
TLDR
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
Cognitive impairment and celiac disease.
TLDR
A possible association exists between progressive cognitive impairment and Celiac disease, given the temporal relationship and the relatively high frequency of ataxia and peripheral neuropathy, more commonly associated with celiac disease. Expand
Central nervous system vasculitis in children
TLDR
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
MRI parameters for prediction of multiple sclerosis diagnosis in children with acute CNS demyelination: a prospective national cohort study
TLDR
Specific MRI parameters can be used to predict diagnosis of MS in children with incident demyelination of the CNS and the ability to promptly identify children with MS will enhance timely access to care and will be important for future clinical trials in paediatric MS. Expand

TLDR
It is believed that primary angiitis of the central nervous system is heterogeneous, and has a better prognosis than previously thought. Expand

TLDR
Angiographic lesions are multifocal and occur proximally and unilaterally within the anterior circulation and there is no significant difference in the ability of MRA to detect and characterize lesions when compared with CA. Expand
