Although based on a small, cross‐sectional case series, our results highlight the potential importance of early identification and IVIg treatment of BGE. Given the cognitive and behavioural deficits described in this report, our clinical recommendation would be to try to treat patients rapidly with immune therapies, when clinical suspicion of BGE is high, to minimize the inflammatory component of the disease.
