Article on autoimmune encephalitis with a section on PANDAS


Recommended Posts

I think this is an excellent summary within the bigger picture of AE. Includes interesting discussion of the function of CamKII and the rest of the Cunningham panel. See pp. 54-65.

I have an annotated, highlighted and dog-eared version of Somnier's comprehensive, easy-to-read, authoritative, and beautifully illustrated compendium. And the post-streptococcal type of autoimmune encephalitis seems to be a particular interest, for he gives it a lot more space than almost all other types of AE. Have I mentioned that I find it incredibly useful??? I do.


I am just very sorry that this not a peer-reviewed review journal article -- one one could cite in discussions with insurance companies!!!


Does anyone know who Dr. Finn Somnier is and what he does?

What is Statens Serum Institut in Denmark?


Is he a basic or clinical researcher? A professor? Given how clearly this is written and illustrated, how well organized, I have wondered if it's a textbook chapter for a class he teaches.
