Steroid-responsive focal epilepsy with focal dystonia accompanied by glutamate receptor delta2 antibody

Journal of Neuroimmunology, 05/25/2012

Antibiotic and antiepileptic drugs were ineffective, although steroid pulse therapy effectively diminished the patient's symptoms. Inflammatory mechanisms may have contributed to this disorder.
