Background and Objective: Recent studies suggest that a substantial number of patients with autoimmune limbic encephalitis may improve if properly diagnosed and treated. This is due, in part, to the increasing recognition of disorders that associate with antibodies to neuronal cell membrane antigens. This review focuses in these disorders, trained in a clinically useful immunologic classification of limbic encephalitis.
