Anti‐N‐methyl‐d‐aspartate receptor (NMDAR) limbic encephalitis is the most common form of paraneoplastic encephalitis that is associated with teratomas. Because tumor removal leads to better clinical outcomes, it is essential to reveal the location of the teratomas. This is the first reported case of anti‐NMDAR encephalitis associated with teratoma of the fallopian tube. Salpingo‐oophorectomy improved neurological symptoms and immunohistochemical examinations indicated the expression of NMDAR… Expand
