Link: Pediatric Hashimoto’s encephalopathy with peripheral nervous system involvement

Hashimoto encephalopathy is a syndrome of encephalopathy associated with elevated concentration of circulating serum
anti-thyroid antibodies usually responsive to steroid therapy. We report a 13-year-old girl with Hashimoto encephalopa-

sleeplessness. After admission she had an ileus with a distended urinary bladder, hallucinations and cognitive impair
ment. She had reduced deep tendon reflexes and distal sensory deficiency.
