Abstract

A 62-year-old woman with no known psychiatric illness had a 1.5-year history of progressive personality and language changes, leading to a loss of functional independence. Laboratory results revealed elevated autoimmune antibodies. She did not improve on high-dose steroid therapy and continued to deteriorate to her death, 2.5 years after symptom onset.
