Encephalitis: An inflammation of the brain which may cause headaches, fatigue, hallucinations and delusions. When the brain becomes inflamed it swells and pushes against the inside of the skull, increasing pressure, limiting blood flow and causing damage to the tissue.
Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis: A rare autoimmune disorder which is often mis-diagnosed as a psychiatric condition - diagnosis is difficult as 50% of cases show no abnormality in MRI scans. Psychiatric manifestations include anxiety, mania, social withdrawal, and psychosis. Initial ﬂu-like symptoms including high temperature, headache, and fatigue, are followed by a psychotic stage with bizarre behaviour, disorientation, confusion, paranoid thoughts, visual or auditory hallucinations and memory deﬁcits. With treatment, these recede with time. Left untreated, however, symptoms may progress to memory impairments, decreased consciousness, movement disorders, and seizures.
