You may be surprise to find out that there’s a lot of medical journal on the subject of Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy, to date, we’ve collected close to 200. Acute necrotizing encephalopathy (ANE), first proposed by Mizuguchi et al. in 1995, is a rare but distinctive type of acute encephalopathy with global distribution . It is generally considered to be a parainfectious disease that is triggered mainly by viral infections.  However, even in 2019, so much is still unknown about Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy:



A young woman with a history of previously undiagnosed episodic neurological deterioration since early childhood associated with viral illnesses developed fulminant encephalitis. Standard investigations gave no diagnosis. Next-generation sequencing identified a heterozygous mutation c.1754C>T (p.Thr585Met) in the RANBP2 gene, giving the diagnosis of recurrent acute necrotising encephalopathy type 1. This condition is probably underdiagnosed, especially in adults, and should be considered in patients with recurrent encephalopathy.
