Hashimoto’s encephalopathy (HE) is a rare but potentially corticosteroid responsive disorder, which should be considered in cases of encephalopathy of unclear etiology. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis usually does not accompany HE and thyroid function is generally clinically normal. In this chapter, we review the differential diagnostic suspicions for a case of encephalopathy of unclear etiology and respective aspects that raise concern for HE. In addition, we discuss the utility of diagnostic testing and options for therapeutic management.
