The remaining diagnoses are paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis... Show me the cancer. Viral Limbic System Encephalitis lacking evidence of infection...? The pathologist at the University of Maryland says it would be less likely, but possible. So, I'm trying to get the records of what was tested for in the spinal fluid... Anti-Hu? anti-what?
I was in this same place last year when my dog died of unknown causes... My parents were keeping him, and they were visiting the fishing camp. My dad's favorite retirement spot. So, when the dog-topsy came back "Severe multifocal chronic suppurative meningoencephalitis"...:
"Spinal cord: ...Multifocally, there are random aggregates of neutrophils, few gitter cells, and histiocytes scattered throughout the grey and white matter. Multifocally, meninges are infiltrated with mild to moderate nukbers of neutrophils admixed with few lymphoplasmacytic cells.
Brainstem: There are multifocal coalescing areas with severe neutrophilic infiltration."
...More than four types of bacteria... Staphylococcus and Enterobacter....
