Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Steroid responsive encephalopathy associated with autoimmune thyroiditis (SREAT) is a condition of presumed autoimmune etiology that can present with a variety of neuropsychiatric signs and symptoms.
OBJECTIVE: To illustrate the clinical findings and treatment options of this underdiagnosed condition.
METHOD: We present a case of a patient diagnosed with SREAT and review the available literature including management of psychiatric symptoms.
RESULTS: Little has been reported about the psychiatric management of patients with SREAT.
CONCLUSION: Psychiatrists practicing in the general hospital setting should be aware of this often unrecognized entity to ensure accurate diagnosis and timely treatment.
