Disease Autoimmune Diseases of the Nervous System

Name Autoimmune Diseases of the Nervous System
Synonyms Autoimmune Disease, Neurologic | Autoimmune Diseases, Nervous System | Autoimmune Diseases, Neurologic | Autoimmune Disorders, Nervous System | Autoimmune Disorders of the Nervous System | Autoimmune Nervous System Diseases | Disease, Neurologic Autoimmune | Diseases, Neurologic Autoimmune | Immune Diseases, Nervous System | Immune Disorders, Nervous System | Nervous System Autoimmune Diseases | Nervous System Immune Diseases | Nervous System Immune Disorders | Neurologic Autoimmune Disease | Neurologic Autoimmune Diseases
Definition Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).
