Limbic encephalitis and type 1 diabetes with glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GAD65) autoimmunity: improvement with high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin therapy.

Abstract : Glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies (GAD-abs) are an immunological factor involved in type 1 diabetes and other diseases involving the central nervous system. This report is of a patient with type 1 diabetes and a rare case of non-paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis mediated by anti-GAD65 antibodies that improved with the use of immunosuppressive drugs.
