Susac syndrome is an important differential diagnosis in monosymptomatic encephalopathy in young adults

This is a case report of a 29-year-old man, who presented with progressive confusion, memory problems and personality changes during 1.5 months. Later, he developed bilateral hearing impairment but had no visual symptoms.

The patient was treated for Susac syndrome with high-dose corticosteroids initially, followed by intravenous immunoglobulin and cyclophosphamide.
