In brief: Dementia + thyroid
Hashimoto's encephalopathy is a rapidly progressive, sometimes steroid-responsive, dementing illness, that accompanies evidence for hashimoto's autoimmune thyroiditis.
Steroid-responsive encephalopathy is often used as an equivalent to hashimoto's. Disorientation, confusing, and other generic features of dementia would be typical.
