Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) encephalitis is an autoimmune disease caused by antibodies against the brain protein, NMDA. Affected individuals display distinctive symptoms, including significant psychiatric disturbances, seizures, confusion, memory loss, and agitation. Women are affected more often than men. Testing is used to confirm a diagnosis of NMDAR encephalitis and to monitor disease progression and treatment response.
