Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor(NMDAR) antibody encephali
Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis is a clinically heterogeneous disorder characterized by epileptic seizures, psychosis, dyskinesia, consciousness impairments, and autonomic instability. Symptoms are always various. Sometimes it presents in milder or incomplete forms. We report 4 cases of anti-NMDAR encephalitis with incomplete forms, 3 cases of which were accompanied by neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder or neurosyphilis respectively.

Anti-NMDAR encephalitis can present in atypical types. When relapsing, it may present with partial aspects or with isolated symptoms of the full-blown syndrome. Anti-NMDAR encephalitis may be related to neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder or neurosyphilis.
