Posttransplant acute limbic encephalitis

Synonyms: PALE

Posttransplant acute limbic encephalitis is a rare acquired non-paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis disorder that develops in the setting of treatment-related immunosuppression typically after allogeneic hemapoietic stem cell transplantation characterized by onset of confusion headache anterograde amnesia seizures and/or loss of consciousness 2-6 weeks following transplantation. Bilateral non-enhancing T2 hyperintensities in limbic structures are observed on magnetic resonance imaging. Mild cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis and syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion may also be associated.
