Anti-N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (anti-NMDAR) encephalitis usually presents with behavioral manifestations and subsequently emerge by an acute or subacute movement disorders. Although in adults the movement disorders seem to appear after a prodromal period with psychiatric features, in children diagnosed with anti-NMDAR encephalitis they may be the initial manifestation. We report a case of a 7 years old male with history of choreiform movements and two isolated seizures episodes.
