Where is the abnormality?
Bilateral asymmetrical temporal and inferomedial frontal lobes and insular cortices
What is it like?
Abnormal CT hypodensity and high FLAIR signal intensity of the affected white matter and cortex
What is the differential diagnosis?
Herpes encephalitis: affects the limbic system bilaterally, temporal lobes, insular cortices and inferolateral frontal lobes. May progress to hemorrhage. Basal ganglia is typically spared
Paraneoplastic tumor-related limbic encephalitis and autoimmune limbic encephalitis: tumour-related limbic encephalitis and autoimmune limbic encephalitis: autoimmune encephalitis. Same distribution as herpes encephalitis but the basal ganglia is frequently involved. Hemorrhage is uncommon
What is the final diagnosis?
