Dr. Abhishek Kumar  | Dr. Vaibhav Mathur
Abstract: Steroid responsive encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroiditis (SREAT), also known as Hashimoto encephalopathy, is a rare and well recognised neurological complication of autoimmune thyroid disease and occurs independently of the thyroid status. Patients exhibit neurological symptoms in the presence of serologic evidence of autoimmune thyroid disease, usually, in the majority of cases, with a normal MRI scan. It is a rare condition with a few case reports in the medical literature. In this case report, we discuss a case having steroid responsive encephalopathy.
