Early operative treatment of anti-N-methyl D-aspartate (anti-NMDA) receptor encephalitis in a patient with ovarian teratoma



Early operative treatment of anti-N-methyl D-aspartate (anti-NMDA) receptor encephalitis in a patient with ovarian teratoma



Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics and Gynecology 42(6): 819-821



Anti-N-methyl D-aspartate (anti-NMDA) receptor encephalitis is often accompanied by ovarian teratoma. Early tumor resection is reported to be effective as a treatment. A 21-year-old woman presented with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis which was accompanied by ovarian teratoma. The present case was a very rare case of an early stage of anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis receiving operative treatment before confirming the presence of anti-NMDA receptor antibody. The diagnosis was established postoperatively by identifying anti-NMDA receptor antibody. In case of suspecting anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis in a patient with ovarian teratoma, early operative treatment should be considered even before confirming the presence of anti-NMDA receptor antibody.
