Keywords:Relapsing polychondritis, cerebrospinal fluid, meningoencephalitis, seizures
Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by the inflammation of cartilaginous tissues, particularly ears, nose, respiratory tract, eyes, and joints. Central Nervous System (CNS) involvement is a rare presentation of RP. We report a case of RP in a 44-year-old male who initially presented as seizures, headache, bilateral red eye, fever and disorientation in time and space.
