Sirs, Non-paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis (NPLE) often results in an unfavorable clinical course with progressive neuropsychological deficits and epileptic seizures despite treatment [1–3]. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDGPET) and antibodies against voltage-gated potassium channels (VGKC-Ab) are helpful in monitoring the course of the disease [3–5]. We present a follow-up of a NPLE patient over a 3-year period with successive affection of… CONTINUE READING
