Study of Neuro-ophthalmology Disorders in Autoimmune Encephalitis (NODE)

Intervention Type: Other
Study Type: Observational
Sponsors: Hospices Civils de Lyon
Participants: 70
Abstract
Autoimmune encephalitis represents a group of rare and heterogeneous neurological disorders. Pathophysiological mechanisms in these diseases are still unknown. Recently, oculomotor and neurovisual disorders have been described. Cerebral areas and neuronal networks associated with these abnormalities are well described. The investigator proposes to study and describe such neuro-ophthalmological disorders in a prospective cohort of patients with a autoimmune encephalitis, to better understand the pathophysiological basis of this neurological condition.
