  • Link: Hashimoto's Encephalopathy Complicated by Cerebellar Ataxia: A Case Report

    To present a case of Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy (HE) with long-term neurological sequelae.BACKGROUND: Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy, also known as steroid responsive encephalopathy secondary to autoimmune thyroiditis (SREAT), is a rare condition that typically affects middle aged females with known anti-TPO antibodies and a history of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The diagnosis is often overlooked because there is no diagnostic biomarker, and patients can present with several non-specific neurological symptoms that are often incorrectly attributed to other disease processes. Neurological outcomes are rarely reported. It is important to recognize and distinguish HE from other encephalopathies as it is a distinct, treatable entity, which is almost always responsive to steroid therapy.
