N-methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA)-Type Glutamate Receptor Autoantibody Disorders - Anti-NMDA-Receptor Encephalitis

Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) encephalitis is a treatment-responsive inflammatory encephalopathic autoimmune disease associated with anti-NMDA receptor antibodies. The disease is mostly associated with teratomas of the ovaries and is thus considered a paraneoplastic neurologic syndrome (PNS). However, there are a significant number of cases with no detectable tumor.
