Abstract

Hashimoto's encephalopathy (HE) is a steroid-responsive encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroiditis; it is based on the inflammatory brain process associated with a cross-reaction to anti-thyroid autoantibodies. HE is manifested by impaired consciousness and focal neurological symptoms. The determination of the serum and cerebrospinal fluid levels of antithyroid autoantibodies plays a main role in diagnosing HE. The latter is treated with glucocorticoids and other immunosuppressive agents. The prognosis is favorable providing that the treatment of the disease is initiated in time.
