Abstract

Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis is an autoimmune disorder that was only recently discovered through the identification of the anti-NMDAR autoantibody in 2007. With an increasing amount of new cases of this autoimmune disorder on the rise, it is important for healthcare providers to be aware of its pathophysiology, presentation, course of disease, and treatment modalities for the successful management of patient’s with anti-NMDAR encephalitis.
