A 31-year-old previously healthy woman presented with hallucinations and altered mental status, which was eventually found to be due to anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor encephalitis. In this case report, we discuss the broad differential diagnosis of encephalitis with infectious and autoimmune causes. Furthermore, we consider empirical treatment options in case a definite diagnosis is hard to be made.
