Anti-GM1 and anti-sulfatide antibodies are frequently found in patients with small vessel ANCA-associated vasculitis and other multi-organ immune-mediated diseases. Upon detection of these antibodies, accurate neurologic examination should be carried out due to the significant association that can be found between these serologic abnormalities and the involvement of the peripheral nervous system as also detected by electrophysiologic studies. This study supports the unexpected possibility that anti-neuronal reactivity may be a direct trigger of neurologic injury in these systemic disorders.
