Abstract

We report a case of a progressive supranuclear palsy-like phenotype with rapidly progressive dementia and prominent language and executive dysfunction. Pathological examination revealed no midbrain or white matter tauopathy, but rather chronic meningoencephalitis and other mixed pathology. The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in this case showed a novel antibody against central nervous system and renal tissue.
