Anti–N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (anti-NMDAR) encephalitis is a form of autoimmune and paraneoplastic encephalitis that is commonly encountered in young women with ovarian teratoma. As an encephalopathy with possible epileptic, extrapyramidal and psychiatric manifestations, the treatment requires both tumor resection and immunosuppression. However, the rarity of the disease and lack of knowledge most often cause the accurate diagnosis to be late for the optimal patient outcome. Herein, we report a case of a 33 year-old female with anti-NMDAR encephalitis that interestingly developed after the surgical resection of ovarian teratoma.

Keywords: Encephalitis, teratoma, Anti–N-methyl-D-aspartate

Anti-N-metil-D-aspartat reseptörü (anti-NMDAR) ensefalit, over teratomu olan genç kadınlarda sıklıkla karşılaşılan bir otoimmün ve paraneoplastik ensefalit şeklidir. Muhtemel epileptik, ekstrapiramidal ve psikiyatrik belirtileri olan bir ensefalopati olarak, tedavi hem tümör rezeksiyonu hem de immünosüpresyon gerektirir. Burada, over teratomunun cerrahi rezeksiyonu sonrası ilginç bir şekilde gelişen anti-NMDAR ensefalitli bir 33 yaşındaki kadın hastayı sunuyoruz.

Anahtar Kelimeler: ensefalit, teratom, anti-NMDA
