European Journal of Medical Case Reports will consider any original case report that adds new information to existing general medical knowledge, and original research relating to case reports in all medical disciplines.
This case reports describes a 15-year-old girl, presenting with unusual behavior, dysphasia and emotional liability. She was diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis and subsequently developed drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome, a medication-induced adverse reaction with a significant mortality rate. The exact trigger of this patient’s DRESS syndrome remains unknown but is thought to be as a result of exposure to ceftriaxone, omeprazole or acyclovir. She was treated with plasmapheresis because she did not respond to either high-dose steroids or intravenous immunoglobulins; this successfully treated her autoimmune encephalitis and DRESS syndrome. The author suggests that plasmapheresis can be a safe and effective treatment within the context of other autoimmune conditions, such as DRESS syndrome.
