We report a case of encephalitis in a 32-year-old woman who initially developed a schizophreniform disorder. The symptoms were further complicated by abnormal movements, dysphagia, progressive weight loss, and aspiration pneumonia. At necropsy, the lesion was noted in various parts of cerebrum and brainstem. Such unusual presentation in patient with encephalitis appears unique and has not been previously reported.
