Hashimoto's encephalopathy (HE) is a rare but probably an unrecognized and underdiagnosed condition in children. Early diagnosis is critical since these patients respond dramatically to corticosteroid therapy. The diagnosis of HE requires a strong clinical suspicion along with a triad of positive antithyroid antibodies, encephalopathy not explained by another etiology, and a response to corticosteroids. We report the case of a 10-year-old female child with HE and review the literature.
