The magnetic resonance imaging MRI of the brain showed small changes that were not significant, such as the presence of hypersignal necefalopatia in the corona radiata and bilaterally semioval center Fig 1.

At present, it is unclear whether antithyroid antibodies represent an immune epiphenomenon in a subset of patients with encephalopathic processes or they are really associated with pathogenic mechanisms of the disorder. Rarity of encephalopathy associated with encefwlopatia thyroiditis: We believe that this pathology is misdiagnosed, therefore, tests detecting the presence of anti-thyroid antibodies are recommended in a clinical presentation of encephalopathy of subacute onset or rapidly progressive dementia associated with myoclonus and triphasic complexes in the EEG, when the ethiology is not identified.
