The article presents a rare clinical case of Autoimmune brain stem encephalitis of unknown etiology in a 6-month-old girl. The manifestation of the disease began with a subacute growing bulbar syndrome, however, in the clinical picture noted hemiparesis, which was not typical for the brain stem lesions. In the series of examinations we revealed a concomitant congenital pathology of the cerebral cortex, which was the cause of child hemiparesis. The clinical case shows the importance of differential diagnosis in limited conditions and medical alertness for the correct diagnosis and further treatment.
