the delayed therapeutic interventions. If untreated, anti-NMDAR encephalitis can be a devastating disease. However, immunotherapy has shown favorable outcomes in 81% of patients (1). Thus, awareness of anti-NMDAR encephalitis in the differential diagnosis of acute adolescent psychosis is of great importance. Encephalitis with anti-voltage-gated potassium channel (anti-VGKC) complex antibodies is a rare condition (7,8). The anti-VGKC antibodies are directed against the VGKC-complex proteins, which
