Eur J Paediatr Neurol. 2021 Aug 31;34:118-122. doi: 10.1016/j.ejpn.2021.07.011. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThis review article covers the vaccination related issues in autoimmune disorders of central nervous system (CNS) including narcolepsy, anti-NMDAR encephalitis, Rasmussen encephalitis and febrile infection related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES). Beyond these conditions the immune mediated epilepsies related with autoimmune CNS disorders are discussed and indications and contraindications of vaccinations in these cases are also considered.PMID:34487956 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejpn.2021.07.011
