In this report, we present a patient with limbic encephalitis and related temporal lobe epilepsy with antibodies (Abs) against voltage-gated potassium channels complex and glutamic acid decarboxylase. The diagnosis was confirmed after the occurrence of adult-onset partial temporal lobe immune epilepsy accompanying increased T2 signal abnormalities in limbic structures, confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging and positive Abs.
