A neuroimmunologist brings together a multispecialty team that might include experts in ophthalmology, chest (thoracic) surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and other specialties.
People with neurological disorders caused by inflammation or autoimmunity benefit from this team-based approach, tailored to their needs, as symptoms can affect multiple body systems and cause weakness, walking problems, and difficulty with speaking, swallowing or chewing.
Conditions and symptoms include
- Autoimmune neurological disorders
- Cerebellar degeneration
- Lambert-Eaton syndrome
- Limbic encephalitis
- Morvan syndrome
- Myasthenia gravis
- Neuromyotonia (Isaacs syndrome)
- Opsoclonus myoclonus
- Paraneoplastic gastrointestinal dysmotility
- Paraneoplastic sensory neuropathy
- Paraneoplastic syndromes
- Stiff person syndrome
