AbstractAbstract PDFSupplementary Material
Movement disorders associated with glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) autoantibodies have rarely been reported as ataxia or tremors. A 32-year-old man with headache and fever, initially diagnosed with viral meningoencephalitis, showed gradual improvement with empirical treatment. Two weeks after the illness, he suddenly developed orofacial, tongue, and neck dyskinesia accompanied by oculomotor abnormalities, which developed into severe generalized choreoballism. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (fluid-attenuated inversion recovery) showed signal hyperintensities in the bilateral globus pallidus interna. The clinical picture suggested an acute inflammatory trigger of secondary autoimmune encephalitis. The autoimmune antibody test was positive for GFAP, with the strongest reactivity in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) before treatment and decreased reactivity in serial CSF examinations during immunotherapy. Dyskinesia gradually improved to the extent that it could be controlled with only oral medications. This patient presented with parainfectious GFAP meningoencephalitis with distinctive clinical features and imaging findings.

AbstractAbstract PDF
PD patients often find it difficult to visit hospitals because of the motor symptoms, distance to the hospital, or absence of caregivers. Telemedicine is one way to solve this problem.
We surveyed 554 PD patients from eight university hospitals in Korea. The questionnaire consisted of clinical characteristics of participants, possible teleconferencing methods, and preference of telemedicine.
A total of 385 patients (70%) had interest to receive telemedicine. Among them, 174 preferred telemedicine whereas 211 preferred in-person visit. The longer the duration of disease, and the longer the time required to visit the hospital, the more the patients have interest to receive telemedicine.
This is the first study on PD patients' preference for telemedicine in Korea. Although the majority of patients with PD have a positive perspective on telemedicine, their interest to receive telemedicine depends on their different circumstance.
