No.: Hashimoto's encephalopathy is a rare condition of the immune system where antibodies attack the brain and thyroid gland. The treatment is aimed at the immune system and includes corticosteroids, other anti-immune drugs, immunoglobulin infusions, and plasmapheresis. Surgery of the thyroid gland may be necessary because of thyroid enlargement or nodules, but will not affect the he.
