Limbic encephalitis in a neuroscientist: CASPR 2 antibody-associated disease after antigen exposure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Autoimmune limbic encephalitis is part of CASPR 2 antibody-associated disease. A man with this rare disorder and a very high antibody titre had a unique history of laboratory exposure to the antigen. Together with earlier observations this case calls for caution in laboratory handling of nerve tissue.
