Abstract

Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor encephalitis has clinical features of psychiatric symptoms, loss of memory, seizure, dyskinesia and autonomic dysfunction. While Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis was initially reported in young women with ovarian teratoma, viral infections can trigger anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis as well. Among them, herpes virus is the most common. We report a patient who developed the anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis 47 days after herpes virus encephalitis, which is, to our knowledge, the first case in Korea.
