Abstract

Encephalopathy is a term for any diffuse disease of brain that alters brain function or structure with very different etiologies and prognoses. There are some reports that steroids have good effects on some encephalopathies with nonvasculitic autoimmune causes. We describe a 63-year-old woman with a 3-month history of progressive gait disturbance, cognitive decline and increasing confusion in whom steroid treatment resulted in dramatic clinical recovery.
